Daniel Rasay is the new head coach of the Oaks Volleyball program. Rasay, a Kailua-Kona, Hawaii native, steps into the large shoes vacated by coaching legend Bill Imwalle, who led Menlo to five California Pacific Conference championships.
"We are extremely fortunate and proud to announce Daniel Rasay as our next head volleyball coach," Menlo College Athletic Director Keith Spataro said. "Daniel represents everything that is good about athletics and we look forward to seeing him lead our program into the future."
After a standout prep career, Rasay enjoyed a successful four years with the University of Hawaii's volleyball squad. As a freshman, Rasay came off the bench and led the Warriors to a four-set victory over Penn State in the 2002 NCAA Tournament semifinals with 21 assists. Hawaii went on to the win the national championship, though it was later relinquished due to the Warriors use of an ineligible player. Rasay would close out his career as a team captain as a senior in 2005.
Rasay spent 2006-08 as the head coach at Mills College. He also spent eight years as a staff coach at the Guy Enriques Team Camp coaching 16- and 17-year-olds for Core Volleyball Club in Pleasanton.
"I am excited for the opportunity to be a part of such a storied program, department, and institution as a whole," Rasay said. "I hope to build on the past success of the program and take it to the next level."
