Nick MacRae enters his third season overall, and second as an assistant coach, at Long Beach State.
In MacRae's first year as an assistant, the Beach went 18-10 and made an appearance in the quarterfinals of the MPSF Tournament. Five 49ers earned All-MPSF honors, while Taylor Crabb was also 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 Long Beach State's best season in five years as it finished with a 24-8 overall record.
MacRae has also served as the technical coordinator for the USA Men's Pan American Team. 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. In addition, he is the club director of High Line 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.
