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).

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 13 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.
