Assistant Coach

3rd Season

Nick MacRae enters his fourth season overall, and third as an assistant coach, at Long Beach State.

Last year, MacRae helped the Beach exceed expecations as they went 15-13 and advanced to their fourth-consecutive MPSF Tournament after being picked to finish 10th in the 12-team MPSF Preseason Poll. Two 49ers garnered All-MPSF honorable mention recognition, while Taylor Gregory was also a Volleyball Magazine third-team All-American.

In MacRae’s first year as an assistant, Long Beach State went 18-10 and made an appearance in the quarterfinals of the MPSF Tournament. Five 49ers earned All-MPSF honors, while Taylor Crabb was a first-team All-America selection.

In 2013, 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.

Outside of the Beach, MacRae was a coach for the USA High Performance Championships in 2014 and 2015. He also coaches at various USA High Performance camps.

From 2012-13, MacRae served as the technical coordinator for the USA Men’s Pan American Team. He helped the U.S. claim a gold medal in the Dominican Republic (2012), while the squad placed fifth at the 2013 Pan Am Games in Mexico City. In addition, he is the club director of Long Beach Volleyball Club.

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.
