Johnathan and Rachel have been coaching together for several years, at both the intercollegiate and club level. During their interview, they speak about how they met, along with the joys and challenges of coaching together as a married couple.

Johnathan Willis is in his first year as a full-time assistant on Liberty Volleyball Head Coach Shane Pinder's staff. He graduated from Liberty in 2006, and spent the next fall as a volunteer assistant at Liberty.
