Head Coach - 2nd Season
Alma Mater: La Verne

Pedro Gonzalez enters his second season as head coach of the Governors State women's volleyball team. He was named the program's second head coach on July 18, 2016.

In his first season with the Jaguars, Gonzalez led the team to 12 victories — 10 more than the previous year. The Jaguars swept season series from IU Northwest (3-0) and Calumet St. Joseph (3-0) and posted wins over NCAA Division III opponents Wilmington and Concordia. Gonzalez also coached five student-athletes who were named to the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) All-Academic Team. 

Prior to arriving at University Park, Gonzalez served as head coach at Hampton University for six seasons (2007-12), guiding the Pirates to three appearances in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Tournament. His teams advanced to the MEAC Semifinals in back-to-back seasons (2011, 2012) with the 2012 squad tying the school record for most Division I wins (19) in a season. In 2011, the Pirates excelled defensively, leading the MEAC in digs per game with a 13.02 average. 

Gonzalez coached five All-MEAC selections at Hampton and earned a reputation as a relentless recruiter, drawing student-athletes from Bulgaria, Canada, Columbia, Latvia, Israel, Macedonia, Puerto Rico and Serbia. He also served as the MEAC's representative on the NCAA Head Coaches Committee.

Gonzalez previously coached three seasons at Colby Community College (2004-06), surpassing the 20-win mark in his last two seasons at the Kansas school.

Most recently, Gonzalez coached for Energy Volleyball Club (2013-16) in Niles and is a member of the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA).

A native of Las Milpas de Los Gonzalez, Sinaloa, Mexico, Gonzalez played two volleyball seasons and received a degree in psychology from the University of La Verne in 2001.
