Nick MacRae enters his second season overall, and first as an assistant coach, at Long Beach State.
Last year, MacRae served as the director of operations for LBSU men's volleyball and helped engineer the team's run to the MPSF Tournament finals. It was the 49ers' best season in five years as they finished with a 24-8 overall record.
MacRae has also served as the technical coordinator for the USA Men's Pan American Team for the last two years. In 2012, he helped the U.S. claim a gold medal in the Dominican Republic, while the squad placed fifth at the 2013 Pan Am Games in Mexico City.
MacRae was born and raised in Long Beach as he prepped at Wilson High School and went on to graduate from Long Beach State with a bachelor's degree in finance in 2012.
