Erin Luthy was named the 10th head coach in the 45-year history of the TU volleyball program on June 7, 2016. Luthy returns with strong ties to Taylor as a former Trojan student-athlete and will transition from her previous role as head volleyball coach at Eastbrook High School.
Luthy is no stranger to the TU volleyball program or the Upland community, having played volleyball at Taylor for Dr. Angie Fincannon from 2001 through 2004. Luthy helped Taylor to a 143-42 record over those four seasons, serving as a three-year starter and helping TU to the NAIA National Tournament in 2001. Other accomplishments included serving as a team captain and earning all-league honors as a senior in 2004 and garnering a pair of NAIA Scholar-Athlete Award honors.
After completing her playing career for the Trojans, Luthy graduated from Taylor in 2005 with a degree in psychology and a minor in youth ministry, before later obtaining a master’s degree in counseling in 2010.
Luthy began her coaching career as an assistant club coach in 2003 and 2005, before taking over for one season as the head volleyball coach at Blackford High School for the 2011 campaign.
For the past three years, Luthy has held the same position at Eastbrook High School, while also serving as a guidance counselor for the school during that time. In addition to her roles at EHS, Luthy has been the Eastbrook Volleyball Club Director since 2014.
Luthy and her husband Chad, reside in Upland and are the parents of Jadyn, Malakai and Zander.
