Miranda Carvalho returns for her third season as the volunteer assistant coach at her alma mater. In her two seasons, she helped guide the 49ers to their 10th and 11th Big West titles and the program's second victory in the NCAA Tournament.
A graduate of Long Beach State in 2001, Carvalho was the team captain for the squad her senior year, which was the first team to reach the Big West Tournament championship match, starting a streak that hasn't been broken since. She was also a member of the first 49er team to post a 20-win season.
Carvalho played at the top of the line-up during her two years at LBSU after transferring from South Carolina. She earned first-team All-Big West honors in both singles and doubles in 2000 and in 2001. As a senior in the 2001 dual match season, she went 19-0 at the No. 2 singles spot while posting a 19-4 record at No. 1 doubles.
Receiving her master's degree from Seattle University, Carvalho resides in Long Beach with her husband, Scott Coon.
