Though she has just finished her second year as an assistant coach, Holly Jones has become an integral part of TCU volleyball over the past four years. She served as a graduate assistant for two before earning the promotion to assistant coach.

In addition to her coaching and scouting work, Jones serves as the program's recruiting coordinator and handles all travel arrangements for the team. A standout libero as a player, Jones also assists with TCU's defensive coordination.

In her first season as an assistant coach, Jones was part of the TCU team that opened the year 13-0 on its way to a 25-7 season. Sarah Joeckel became the school's single-season leader in digs (640) and digs per set (5.42) as TCU led the Mountain West in digs. TCU was again strong defensively in 2012, finishing the season fourth in the Big 12 in digs.

Jones spent the 2009 and 2010 campaigns as the graduate assistant manager, helping to coordinate travel, serving as the camp director of Prentice Lewis camps and operating TCU's statistical program, Data Project. Her passion for TCU volleyball grew as the Frogs made their first NCAA tournament appearance in her first season in Fort Worth.

As the graduate manager, Jones was instrumental in the nomination process of eventual AVCA Honorable Mention All-American honorees, Megan Munce, Kourtney Edwards and Christy Hudson, TCU's first-ever AVCA All-Americans.

She began her coaching career in 2003 at the Junior National level as the Co-Head coach of 13 Brazos Valley Juniors Volleyball Club. Since, Jones has coached for several distinguished Texas clubs including Skyline Juniors and Texas Advantage Volleyball, where she served as assistant coach in addition to running positional training clinics.

Outside of club volleyball, Jones began working Texas A&M summer camps in 2003 and worked every summer camp through 2007. She has also been a lead camp coach for All-American volleyball camps, overseeing and directing satellite camp operations.

On the court, Jones had a successful tenure at Texas A&M University from 2002-2005. As a three-year starting libero for the Aggies, she helped guide the squad to four consecutive NCAA appearances, including a Sweet Sixteen appearance in 2003. From 2003-2005, she was awarded with the team's Best Defensive Player honor and holds a place in the record books in digs per season with 461 digs in 2005, ranking fifth all-time.

Jones' success was not limited to the court, as she garnering Big 12 all-academic second team in 2004 as well as first team honors in 2005. Jones completed her undergraduate degree in 2006 with a Bachelors degree in Communications and minor in Business. She also earned a Master's of Liberal Arts from TCU while serving as the graduate manager.

A native of Houston, formerly Holly Clay, she married Blake Jones on May 22, 2010.
