Todd Humphry begins his 17th year as the head coach of the Freed-Hardeman University Lady Lion volleyball team ready to keep the program's tradition of success alive in 2016.

Throughout his 16 seasons with the Lady Lions, Humphry has posted a 335-188 and currently ranks 22nd on the NAIA Most Winning Coaches List. This past season, Humphry led the Lady Lions to a 16-14 record after finishing their season in the quarterfinal round of the American Midwest Conference Tournament. Humphry is known for encouraging strong academic performance from his athletes and 2015 was no exception, as 12 players were named to the All-Conference Academic team under his direction.

Prior to joining the American Midwest Conference in 2014, the Lady Lions had a dominant run in the TranSouth Conference.  More recently, 2011 was one of the most successful seasons in program history as FHU won its fourth conference championship in the five years and advanced to the final site of the NAIA National Tournament for the first time ever.  FHU also received its first national ranking during the season, peaking at No. 21.

It was an impressive way to build on 2010, when the Lady Lions won their third TranSouth Conference tournament championship in the last four seasons and earned their second straight berth to the NAIA National Tournament Opening Round.

One year previously, the Lady Lions wrapped up their third straight regular season conference championship and followed by winning the conference tournament for the second time in the last three years, earning the program's first berth to the NAIA National Tournament Opening Round.

In 2008, FHU went 32-5 to claim its first consecutive 30-win seasons in program history and went undefeated in conference play in the regular season, becoming the first team to do that in four years.

In addition to the program's successes on the floor, they have had equally impressive success in the classroom. Since Humphry's arrival, the program has boasted 51 TranSouth Conference Scholar Athletes and 15 NAIA Scholar Athletes.

Before coming to Henderson, Humphry coached high school volleyball in Arkansas and Tennessee. During a seven-year stint at Harding Academy in Memphis, he led his team to six TSSAA state tournaments including a state championship in 1992.

Humphry, a 1989 graduate of Harding University in Searcy, Ark., is married to the former Susan Malone, who is the head volleyball coach at Chester County High School in Henderson. They have three children: Emily, Jared, and Allie.
