Kyle Luongo, 2010 Pepperdine graduate, enters his third season with the women’s volleyball team in 2016. He joined the staff in February 2014.

Last season, Luongo helped the team to a 17-14 overall record and eight wins for a 6th place finish within the West Coast Conference.  Since he joined the squad for the 2014 season, the Waves have gone 29-32 overall and 15-21 among conference competition.

Luongo was a member of the Waves' men's volleyball team from 2008-10. He was a volunteer assistant coach at the University of Michigan prior to returning to Malibu.

He began working for the Wolverines' women's volleyball program as a volunteer assistant coach in May of 2013. In addition to scouting opponents, he assisted in team practices and individual training sessions, and also served as a camp director for Michigan's summer volleyball camps. 

The Wolverines finished 18-12 with Luongo on the sidelines and made their 14th overall appearance at the NCAA Tournament. Jennifer Cross, Lexi Dannemiller and Molly Toon were all awarded AVCA All-American honorable mention acclaim at the end of the season. 

Prior to his stint in Ann Arbor, Luongo served as an assistant coach for both the junior varsity and varsity teams at Harvard-Westlake School in Studio City, Calif. He's also lent his coaching expertise to Heritage Christian School in Granada Hills, Calif., where he was the head coach of both the boys and girls varsity programs.

Luongo's prior collegiate coaching experience includes a one-year stop at Pierce College where he worked as a volunteer assistant coach for the men's team during the 2010-11 season. His primary role with the Brahmas was to train setters and oversee the offensive system.

In 2006, Luongo began his coaching career with Gold Medal Squared. As a lead camp coach, he would travel to high schools and clubs throughout the country to put on four-day volleyball camps.

Luongo has also coached at Legacy Volleyball Club, the Los Angeles Volleyball Academy and the Marv Dunphy Volleyball Camp.

As a student-athlete, Luongo was the starting setter for Pierce College from 2006-07. He led the squad to the state finals as a freshman and followed that up with a semifinal appearance during his sophomore year. He transferred to Pepperdine prior to the 2008 season. After redshirting his first year with the Waves, Luongo helped the team to the MPSF Tournament finals in 2010.

Luongo graduated from Pepperdine in 2010 with a degree in sports medicine.

Originally from Palmdale, Luongo now resides in West Hills with his wife Melissa. The couple have one daughter, Hannah.
