PULLMAN – Women’s volleyball head coach Jen Greeny signed a contract extension keeping her in Pullman until the 2026 season, Washington State Director of Athletics Pat Chun announced on Friday.

Greeny’s contract was set to expire after the 2022 season, having spent the previous 11 years as head coach of the Cougars. She’s earned Pac-12 Coach of the Year awards twice over that span and brought Washington State to six consecutive postseason appearances.

"During her time leading Cougar Volleyball, Coach Greeny has established our program as a national contender annually," said Chun. "She has proven to be one of the best coaches in our conference and the country. We are fortunate to have her guiding our program for many years to come."

Having played middle blocker for the Cougars from 1995-98, Greeny returned to the school as an assistant coach from 2000-2004. After a stint as head coach for Lewis-Clark State from 2004-2007, she returned to Pullman once again to serve as head coach in 2011.

"It is an honor to continue leading this program and build on the success we have achieved," said Greeny. "Washington State University is home and we are so thankful to our administration for believing in us. We love Pullman and are 100 percent invested in the tremendous young women that have and continue to make Cougar Volleyball so special."

Greeny was chosen to a coaching staff to train Team USA hopefuls at the U.S. Olympic Training Center for tryouts with the U.S. Women’s National Team and U.S. Collegiate National Team. Eight players under Greeny’s coaching have gone on to play internationally over the past decade.
