Meredith Schamun was hired as head coach of the University of Pennsylvania volleyball program in March 2020. Schamun's first season as head coach (2021) started with three straight wins, Penn winning its own Sheraton University City Invitational, and ended with the Quakers' first true sweep of an Ivy League weekend since the 2012 season as they beat both Cornell and Columbia by 3-0 scores at The Palestra. Junior outside hitter Autumn Leak earned second-team All-Ivy honors as the Red and Blue exceeded preseason expectations.

Schamun (pronounced shah-MOON) came to Penn from the Main Line, as she helped Villanova to a 39-23 record in two seasons as the assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for the Wildcats. A highly decorated setter at Rice University, Schamun also served two seasons as an assistant coach at Tulane and two seasons at UCF following a professional playing career.Her recruiting connections around the country, especially in her native Southern California, will serve the program well. I look forward to watching Penn volleyball compete for Ivy League championships in the future.”

“Meredith impressed our search committee with her experience, technical knowledge, leadership and passion for volleyball,” the T. Gibbs Kane, Jr. W'69 Director of Athletics and Recreation Dr. M. Grace Calhoun said at the time of her hiring. “She was an outstanding student-athlete at Rice and has a true appreciation for the Ivy model of intercollegiate athletics, which provides an unrivaled academic and athletic experience for our student-athletes."
