The 2017 volleyball season marks Adam Longmore's fourth season as head coach of the Viking volleyball program.

A former assistant at Southern Utah University, Longmore was hired to lead VCSU's program in April 2014. In his first year at VCSU the Vikings went 15-18 overall, which tied the program's most wins since 2006.

His 2016 squad posted a 12-22 overall record and a 7-9 conference mark that placed the Vikings fourth in the NSAA standings. The Vikings advanced to the NSAA Tournament semifinals before falling to eventual champion Viterbo University.

In 2015, VCSU posted a 9-20 overall record.

Prior to taking over at VCSU, Longmore completed his sixth season as assistant coach at Southern Utah University, an NCAA Division I school that competed in the Summit League and the Big Sky Conference during his time at the school. Longmore helped rebuild the Southern Utah volleyball program from the ground up after it was reinstated at the school following a 20-year hiatus.

While at SUU, Longmore specialized in coaching blockers. In 2012, SUU finished 2nd in the Big Sky Conference and 27th in the nation in blocks per set (2.64), and in 2013 SUU was 53rd in the nation with 2.55 blocks per set.

Prior to Southern Utah, Longmore was head coach from 2004-2007 at William Woods University, an NAIA school in Fulton, Mo. He was also an assistant for William Woods in 2003, and earned a Master's degree in athletic administration from the school in 2007.

Longmore earned his Bachelor's degree from Utah State University, where he spent time playing on and coaching the men's club volleyball team. He has also worked with Gold Medal Squared as a volleyball camp and clinic instructor for more than 10 years.

Adam and his wife Jennifer reside in Valley City with their three children, daughter Odessa and sons Addison and Elijah.
