Notre Dame volleyball coach Jim McLaughlin, the former Husky coach, has resigned due to health reasons after three seasons.

McLaughlin has been dealing with back issues for some time that recently became so severe that it became difficult to perform all his coaching duties.

Irish associate head coach Mike Johnson will take over the Notre Dame head-coaching position effective July 1.

McLaughlin’s third season at Notre Dame in 2017 produced a second consecutive 22-10 record and the first Irish appearance in the NCAA tournament since 2012.

McLaughlin’s 28-year career record stands at 630-253 (.713).

McLaughlin coached the USC men’s team to an NCAA title in 1989-90 and led the Washington women’s team to the 2005 NCAA crown. He came to Notre Dame in 2015 after 14 highly successful seasons as the Husky coach, a tenure that featured four trips to the NCAA national semifinals in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2013.
