Denny Falls has been named one of the assistant coaches for the Men's Volleyball team. Falls, who grew up in Orland Park, Illinois, is the first assistant coach to be hired to the inaugural staff.

Currently, Falls is a coach for the Academy Volleyball Club in Palo Alto, but his coaching experience runs further back than just this most recent stint. He coached with Ultimate Volleyball Club and Bay to Bay Volleyball Club Youth Development Program over the past four year. His days on the court were marked with much success, as well. He played at Providence High School and Ultimate Volleyball Club in Illinois, and his success at this level led him here to the Bay Area, where he competed for Stanford University from 2010-2014 as a middle hitter.

During his time at Stanford, he helped lead the Cardinal to a number two ranking nationally and a 2014 NCAA Men's National Championship. At Stanford, Falls made 4 straight MPSF Playoff apperances in 2011, 2012, 2013, & 2014, finishing top 4 in the nation by ranking all 4 years.  He was an Academic All-American and placed top -0 in Stanford Program history in Career Blocks per Set, Single Season Blocks per Set, Single Season Hitting Percentage, and Career Hitting Percentage. Falls was Recognized as one of the top youth players in the country, selected to Volleyball Magazine's "Fab 50" list of top seniors from the class of 2010 & 2009 Volleyball Magazine "32 Underclassmen to Watch", and eventually ranked as #6 recruit of 2010 class entering college. In 2009 & 2010, he was chosen as 1st alternate for Youth National Team and Junior National Team 12-player roster, participating and training in USAV High Performance pipeline program to the national team.
