Dylan Butler enters his second season at the helm of the Hill College volleyball program.

In Butler’s first season as head coach, he led the team to an 11-15 finish. Despite the rocky start to the season, he rallied the team to go undefeated in the second half of conference play, going 9-0, winning the Region V North Conference Tournament, and earning a bid to the 2021-2022 NJCAA National Tournament where he was named the Southwest District A coach of the year. The 16th-seeded Lady Rebels fell to the number 1 seeded team in the country in the first round. In the second round, the Lady Rebels almost took down the number 8 team in the country but came up short in the fifth set. Coach Butler and the Lady Rebels finished a roller-coaster season in the top 16 teams in the country with three First Team All-Conference selections, two Second Team All-Conference Selections, Region V North New Comer of the Year, and Region V North Conference Tournament MVP awards.  

Prior to assuming the head coach role, Butler served as the Assistant Coach for two seasons aiding the Lady Rebels to a 14-6 overall record, a Region V North Regular Season Conference Title, and a Region V North Conference Tournament Title in the 2020-2021 season finishing in the top 20 teams in the country. In Butler’s first season as Assistant Coach, the Lady Rebels finished 20-10 overall and earned the Region V North Conference Tournament Title, earning a National Tournament Bid, and finishing the season in the top 16 teams in the country. As the program's designated hitting coach, Butler had a key role in the training of two, Second Team All-American outside hitters and many First and Second Team All-Conference Selections.


Prior to Hill College, Butler was a volunteer assistant coach at the University of Dallas for the 2018-2019 season. During his time with the Lady Crusaders, Butler assisted the team to a 20-15 overall record - the best season record since 2014 - and accomplished a fourth-place finish at the SCAC Conference Championship Tournament. Butler played a key role in the training of the Lady Crusader’s First and Second Team All-Americans and the SCAC First Team All-Conference Selection.

Prior to Butler’s time at the University of Dallas, he served as an undergraduate assistant at the University of Central Oklahoma (UCO) for two seasons under head coach Edgar Miraku, where he helped UCO finish with an overall record of 28-5 in 2015, and 31-5 in 2016. 

Butler was also an undergraduate assistant at the University of Arkansas Fort Smith (UAFS) under head coach Jane Sargent, where he helped UAFS finish with an overall record of 27-8 in 2011. 

Butler serves as the Boy’s Club volleyball Director at Tejas Volleyball Club in the DFW Area.


Butler played collegiately at Park University in Kansas City, MO, where he helped the team win the NAIA National Invitational Championship title in 2014. Prior to Park University, Dylan played at Missouri Valley College in Marshall, MO, where he assisted the team to an 8th place finish.
