GREENSBORO, N.C. – The UNC Greensboro (UNCG) volleyball team and Head Coach Felicia Turner has announced the addition of Assistant Coach Justin Paggao on Tuesday.

“I am absolutely thrilled to announce Justin Paggao as our new assistant coach,” said Turner. “Justin is an exceptional individual, a true go-getter who embodies the values of our UNCG program. With his expertise in analytics and unwavering passion for our sport, he is going to add so much value to our program. We are excited to have Justin and his family a part of the Spartan family.”

Paggao comes to UNCG after serving as the director of volleyball operations at Wake Forest for the past two seasons.

During his time with the Demon Deacons, he directed all aspects of daily program operations and away travel coordination. In addition, Paggao analyzed daily statistics and film, assisted with opponent scouting breakdown, and on-court training with the team. He also assisted in on-campus recruiting visits and organized summer camps. While at Wake Forest, Paggao saw the team earn back-to-back USMC/AVCA Team Academic Awards, and assisted in coaching the 2022 ACC Freshman of the Year.

Prior to his stint in Winston-Salem, Paggao served as the varsity head coach at Northern Guilford High School for the 2019-20 season. Outside of typical in-season and offseason duties at Northern Guilford, he organized summer camp programs for youth and high school athletes, while also fundraising for the school’s athletic department and volleyball program.

The Lombard, Illinois native, served as the associate club director at Piedmont Volleyball Club in Greensboro for four years. He led training sessions and practices at the club and helped recruit, train, and supervise the coaching and weight training staff of over 35 individuals. Paggao coordinated numerous tryouts and camps in his days with Piedmont VBC. In 2018, he was honored as a recipient of the American Volleyball Coaches Association Diversity Award for his efforts.

Paggao holds ample experience in university involvement, having worked as the assistant director of student involvement at Elon University during the 2017-18 school year. In the two years prior, Paggao held a similar position as a graduate assistant at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Paggao graduated from Illinois State University in December 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a Minor in Information Systems, before going on to obtain a Master of Education in Student Affairs in Higher Education from Marquette in May 2017.
