Trent Herman spent four seasons (2004-07) with the Rice volleyball program after spending four years as an assistant volleyball coach and director of recruiting at Iowa State. He is now the head women's volleyball coach for the University of St. Thomas (NAIA) in Houston.
Herman was an integral part of the recruiting process, scouting young talent among high school freshmen and sophomores. Additionally, he was charged with the handling of equipment, travel, opponent scouting, and video responsibilities.
Herman arrived at Iowa State in 2001, and the Cyclones had 19 academic All-Big 12 honorees during Herman's tenure, including five in his final season. Herman's 2004 recruiting class was ranked in the top 40 nationally according to PrepVolleyball.com.
Prior to his time at Iowa State, Herman served two seasons as a graduate assistant coach at Southwest State University in Marshall, Minnesota. In 2000, he helped coach the Mustangs to a 19-13 overall record and a 13-5 finish in the Northern Sun Conference. The team finished second in the league in 1999 to compile a two-year record of 39-26 during Herman's tenure.
Herman also has experience coaching at the club level. In addition to his graduate assistant duties at Southwest State, Herman served as the club director and the head volleyball coach for the Southwest Minnesota Juniors Volleyball Club team in 1999 and 2000. Prior to his arrival in Minnesota, he was the club director for the West Central Kansas Juniors Volleyball Club from 1997-1999.
