Former University of Hawaiʻi All-American, Olympian and assistant coach Robyn Ah Mow-Santos will take over for Dave Shoji as women’s volleyball program’s next head coach.
Ah Mow-Santos succeeds Shoji who simultaneously announced his retirement after 42 seasons as head coach. Shoji concludes his legendary coaching career with 1,202 wins, second-most in NCAA Division I history, and four national championships.
“I don’t think anyone will ever match what Dave has accomplished for our Rainbow Wahine volleyball program in terms of longevity and accomplishments,” Athletics Director David Matlin said.
“He has dedicated more than half of his life to the program and has touched the lives of hundreds of student-athletes.”
His legacy will live on through his well-deserved induction into the AVCA Hall of Fame and through all the blood, sweat and tears his teams have battled through on the court at Klum Gym and the Teraflex at the Stan Sheriff Center. Rainbow Wahine Volleyball will always raise a glass to Dave Shoji.”
