Andrew Pile enters his third season as the head women’s volleyball coach and was elevated to become the program's first full-time head coach in the spring of 2016. He arrived in Carlisle following two impressive seasons as an assistant at Muhlenberg College. Pile joined the Muhlenberg coaching staff for the 2013 season and made an immediate impact, helping the Mules become the top blocking team in the Centennial Conference.
The Mules compiled an overall record of 45-20 and went 16-4 in conference play during his two seasons in Allentown. Pile helped mentor six All-Conference players and the 2013 Rookie of the Year.
“I was very excited to become the first full-time head coach of the program, and look forward to recruiting the type of student-athlete that wants to be successful on the court and in the classroom. I want to build a foundation to compete for conference championships and NCAA tournament bids,” says Pile.
Pile is a 2013 graduate of Limestone (S.C.) College, where he was a four-year starter as a setter and right-side hitter for the volleyball team. He served as team captain all four years, helping the Saints reach their first-ever conference championship match in 2013. Pile went to Emmaus High School, where he was an all-state selection in volleyball. He served as a volunteer assistant coach for the girls’ team at Spartanburg High School and has worked numerous camps in New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania.
