  • Since the passing of Title IX, the percentage of female head coaches coaching women's teams has declined from 90% to 42.6%. Women have eleven times more opportunity to play NCAA volleyball than men, yet males still occupy the majority of head coaching positions at the highest levels. The purpose of this study was to compare the head coaching intentions of NCAA Division I assistant volleyball coaches based on gender and to determine what variables significantly explained these intentions. This study confirmed previous findings that male coaches had significantly higher self-efficacy and head coaching intentions than females. A multiple linear regression resulted in a significant model including variables explaining 12.9% of the variance in head coaching intentions. A female only model explained 16.6% of the variance including variables: self-efficacy, level of volleyball played and level of mentoring.
