SPVC is proud to announce the hiring of Ed Jackson. Welcome to the SPVC family
The San Diego native has 15 years of collegiate volleyball coaching experience, most recently as the head coach of Div. II Academy of Art in San Francisco. Prior to that, he had assistant coaching stops at Fresno State, William & Mary and UC Santa Barbara, and was the recruiting coordinator at both Fresno State and William & Mary. He also oversaw a sand volleyball training program at Academy of Art, and helped with a sand training program at Fresno State.
Jackson spent the last three years (2012-14) at Academy of Art, where the Urban Knights improved their overall and conference records each season of his tenure. Last year, he coached the program’s first All-American in outside hitter Melissa Brum, and the Knights captured the program’s first AVCA Team Academic Award with a 3.35 team grade point average in 2013.
At Fresno State (2008-11), Jackson was the top assistant and helped coach the Bulldogs to improved records during his four seasons. He was the team’s recruiting coordinator, trained the setters, oversaw all aspects of video technology, and helped with the team’s in-match strategy.
Prior to Fresno State, Jackson was the associate head coach at William & Mary. He spent five seasons (2003-07) assisting in the turnaround of a program that went from seven wins to 22 wins in three years. During his time at William & Mary, Jackson was responsible for recruiting, practice planning, video analysis and in-match strategy.
Prior to joining the staff at William & Mary, Jackson was an assistant coach at UC Santa Barbara for one season (2002) where he helped coach the team to a 30-3 overall record, an 18-0 Big West Conference mark and a Sweet 16 appearance at the NCAA Championships. He assisted in the development of two AVCA All-Americans along with four first team All-Big West Conference selections.
Jackson also coached the men’s club program at UC Davis in 1998, and served as a graduate assistant during the 1994-95 academic year for the women’s team at Eastern Illinois. On the prep level, Jackson served as the director of volleyball and head coach of the varsity team at Sacramento’s Rio Americano High School, compiling a combined record of 39-6 in two seasons (1999-00). Under Jackson, the Raiders advanced to at least the quarterfinal round of the state championship tournament both years (including the semifinals in 1999), and won the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Sac-Joaquin sectional championships both seasons.
As a player at Sacramento State, Jackson played at three different positions during his four seasons, including two years at outside hitter, one season at setter and one season as the team’s rightside hitter. His All-American seasons came at two different positions, including outside hitter in 1992 and rightside hitter in 1997.
Jackson has both a bachelor’s degree (1994, psychology) and teaching credential (1999, physical education) from Sacramento State, and added a master’s degree in physical education from Eastern Illinois in 1995.
Jackson has two children, Eddie (7) and Kellan (5).
