Now in his third season as an assistant coach with the Roadrunners volleyball team, Pat Stangle works with the team's setters and also coordinates opponent scouting reports and film exchange in addition to other administrative duties within the program.

During his first season with the program, the Roadrunners won both the Conference USA regular season and tournament championships.

All his hard work with setter Waldrip would come to fruition in 2014 as she was named the league's Setter of the Year.

Rachel Smith was named the 2004 MWC Co-Freshman of the Year and she went on to earn first-team all-league honors her final two campaigns.

Stangle served as the top assistant at Washington from 2002-03 where he recruited and coached former UTSA assistant coach and former Huskies standout Sanja Tomasevic.

He also was the head coach at Seward County (Kan.) Community College from 1997-2001 where led the Lady Saints to 225 victories, a pair of Jayhawk Conference Championships, three consecutive NJCAA Region VI titles (1999-2001) and three appearances at the NJCAA Championship Tournament. Stangle coached 18 all-region players and six All-Americans during his time in Liberal, Kan.

Following the 2013 season, Stangle was inducted into the Seward County Community College Hall of Fame. He was the lone inductee in the 2014 class.

He began his coaching career at Central Christian College (Kan.) and led the program to its first two regional tournament appearances in program history.

The Spokane, Wash., native was inducted into the NJCAA Volleyball Coaches Hall of Fame in 2008.

He earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from Hardin-Simmons in 1988 and an MBA from UTSA five years later.
