Paul Koncir was named an assistant coach for the IU Volleyball program in January 2011 after being added as an interim assistant coach during the 2010 season. He came to Bloomington after serving as the head coach at Towson University from 2006-09.
Koncir's first season at Indiana was a historic one, as Indiana advanced to the NCAA Tournament and made a run to the Sweet Sixteen for the first time in program history. The Hoosiers finished the season 23-12 and saw Ashley Benson and Jordan Haverly earn All-Big Ten recognition. The Hoosiers won a 3-1 thriller at home over eventual NCAA champion Penn State, and IU took down Tennessee and Miami in NCAA first and second round action.
Season two in Bloomington saw Caitlin Cox break the school record for career digs, and Samantha Thrower tie a national record for hitting percentage in a match with 15 kills on 15 swings against Buffalo. The Hoosiers also took non-conference tournament titles at both home tourneys, winning the Hoosier Classic and the IU Classic.
In his four seasons leading the Tigers volleyball program, Koncir gathered two trips to the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Championships, a top-100 recruiting class (2009), six All-CAA selections, a CAA Rookie of the Year and a 2010 commitment from an Under-Armour High School All-American.
Before taking over at Towson, Koncir spent four years as an assistant coach for both the men's and women's teams at George Mason University (2004-06). His connection to George Mason dates back to his playing days as a GMU Patriot from 1994-98.
Koncir played for the Patriots from 1995-98. He started every match his senior season at outside hitter and was second on the team in kills. He has had a full playing career since graduating from Mason. In 1998 and 1999, Koncir was a member of the USAV Chesapeake Region championship team. In 1998 and 2002, he played for the Bahama International Tournament champions. In 2003, he was the Scottish Open Tournament MVP and in 2000 and 2004, his team won the Scottish Open.
Koncir's coaching trail also includes stops as an assistant coach for the Georgetown University women's team (2001-03), head coach of the Georgetown men's club team (2003) and assistant for both programs back at George Mason in 1999.
Koncir graduated from George Mason University in 1999 with a degree in Studio Arts.
