“Joey has been with our program as a volunteer coach since 2012 when I transitioned from assistant coach to head coach,” said Head Coach Michelle Myers. “He was someone that I trusted would always give me good advice and support. His role was limited due to his other job’s responsibilities. I am extremely thankful that he is now able to assume a full time coaching position with us. The players are very familiar with Joey and are also happy to see his role on our staff increase.”

“Joey has an incredible knowledge of the game and is a life-long learner,” said Myers. “His network of coaching and industry connections is tremendous. He grew up around the game and has coached at just about every level.”
Hoffman will be assisting in all aspects of the program especially team training, player development and recruiting.
“One of Joey’s biggest strengths is his enthusiasm and positive nature,” said Myers. “He connects well with everyone he comes in contact with and has a great sense of humor. As a head coach, I am always looking to surround our program with good people who have great character and will always put the team’s interest first. Joey fits that description to a T.”
