Head Volleyball Coach: Tony Miranda
Tony Miranda completed his ninth season overall as the Edmonds College volleyball coach in 2021. Now six years into his second stint at Edmonds, Miranda has guided the Tritons back to the NWAC playoffs all five years (2016-2021). There were no playoffs in 2020 due to COVID-19 as the season was shortened. Edmonds placed 5th overall at the 2021 NWAC Championship, advancing to the Elite 8 after winning their NWAC Super Regional. The Tritons finsihed the season 24-10 overall, going 9-3 in North Region play.
The Tritons battled injuries up and down the roster in 2019 but still finished 28-14 overall, including a 9-3 mark in the North Region. Edmonds defeated Linn-Benton in the first round at the NWAC Tournament before losing to NWAC runner-up Pierce College.
Miranda led the team to the North Region crown in 2018 as Edmonds finished the season 4th overall at the NWAC Tournament with 32 wins, and in the process, recorded the program's longest winning streak in its history (20 games). The Tritons were a perfect 12-0 in North Region play as Miranda garnered North Coach of the Year honors for the third time in his career; the 2018 title was the fourth of his career. He is now 59-25 in the North as Edmonds' head coach.
In 2017 Edmonds won 27 games, the most since Miranda's record-setting 2008 squad. The team's playoff appearance in 2016 snapped a seven-year drought.
Miranda was previously the head coach of the Tritons for three seasons (2007-2009) after serving as an assistant for the 2005 and 2006 seasons. From 2007-2009 Edmonds totaled a 72-58 overall record, including a 24-12 mark in the North Region. Edmonds took the North Region crown in '08 and posted a 3rd place finish at the NWAC Tournament.
Before coming to Edmonds, he served as the Bellevue College head coach from 2001-2004. During that stretch, he led the Bulldogs to four straight NWAC playoff appearances, two North Region titles (2002, 2003), a 5th place finish in 2001, and a 3rd place showing in 2002. He was named the North Region Coach of the Year in 2001 and 2002 and was recognized as the NWAC Coach of the Year in 2002.
In 2016 Miranda led the Tritons to an exciting 26-18 overall record, helping to re-emerge the program to its past prominence. Edmonds finished North league play tied for fourth place with Olympic, but defeated the Rangers in a thrilling tie-breaker, 3-2, to earn an appearance at the NWAC Tournament. In 2017 the Tritons went 27-17 and were one set away from the North Region title, losing to Bellevue 3-2 to close out the regular season. The past four years Edmonds has gone 5-6 at the championship tournament. As a head coach in the NWAC, Miranda has amassed an impressive 308-192 record (136-56 against North Region opponents) over 11 years. His teams have qualified for the postseason in 10 of 11 years; he has 19 NWAC playoff wins under his belt.
