Hannah Long enters her third season as head coach of the Queens University of Charlotte women's volleyball program in 2018-19.

She joined the Royals from Southwestern University where she served as the program's head coach since 2004.

Long, who earned her 400th career coaching victory on Oct. 14, 2017, led Queens to a 23-8 overall record and its first South Atlantic Conference Championship since joining the league in 2013. The Royals advanced to the NCAA Regionals for the second straight season.

Six members of the Queens University of Charlotte women's volleyball team received postseason honors from the South Atlantic Conference. The Royals also received three All-Region awards and four All-State honors from different organizations.

In 2016, the Royals advanced to the Sweet Sixteen in NCAA Championship play for the first time in program history. The Royals were able to finish this season with a record of 16-6 in SAC play; another record in program history. They advanced to the semifinals in the conference tournament and were tabbed the No. 7 seed in the region as they advanced into the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2013.

While at Southwestern, Long built the program to a 362-93 overall record which included three conference titles in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC). She was named SCAC Coach of the Year four-times while claiming the American Volleyball Coaches Association's South Region Coach of the Year in 2009. As she helped to raise the team to a Top 25 division III program, Long produced nine AVCA All-American nods and five SCAC player of the year recipients.

Long's vision for the program brought the Pirates to a NCAA Regional Tournament on 10 different occasions across her 12-year span as head coach. The team reached the regional semifinals six different times with her latest coming in 2013. She would reach the regional finals match, twice.

Prior to Southwestern, Long worked as an assistant coach at Western Oregon University and Portland State University. A player herself, Long was a two-sport athlete while at Portland State playing for both the school's volleyball and basketball team. For volleyball, she served time as team captain in addition to making both the Big Sky all-conference team and the all-academic team. She earned the nod as the school's Female Athlete of the Year in 1999 and the Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 1998.

Long has a master's degree in educational administration from Texas A&M and a bachelor's degree from Portland State in mathematics and communication.
