MOORHEAD — Minnesota State Moorhead head volleyball coach Bob Jones had the interim tag removed from his title, interim athletic director Chad Markuson announced Tuesday, Nov. 30.

Jones has been the Dragons interim head coach the past two seasons, including a 2020 season that was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. He has received a multiple-year deal to lead the program.

"Coach Jones has done a great job of leading our program the past couple years with the turmoil of COVID and has assembled a team of players and coaches that will continue to elevate the program," Markuson said.

Jones joined the Dragons program in 2016 when he was named to team's top assistant coach. Prior to that, he was the lead assistant at Concordia for 17 seasons and also was an assistant at North Dakota State from 1994-99.

"My staff and I are working hard with our student-athletes to build a competitive and successful program that competes with grit, heart and humility in the classroom and on the court," said Jones, who is from Anaheim, Calif.
