Jane Becker (St. Thomas '04) has served as the Augsburg University volleyball coach since the 2010 season.

In addition to her coaching duties, Becker also serves as the Athletic Department director of community service/engagement.

In her tenure at Augsburg, Becker has guided the Auggies to prominence in the MIAC, one of the toughest NCAA Division III volleyball conferences in the country. Under Becker, Augsburg has recorded at least 16 wins every year, while qualifying for the MIAC postseason playoffs five of the last seven years. In 2013 and 2014, the Auggies were crowned MIAC regular-season co-champions and became an NCAA national tournament qualifier, while Becker was named MIAC and AVCA Central Region Coach of the Year in both seasons. Augsburg also claimed the MIAC regular-season crown in 2016. No stranger to success, Becker came to Augsburg after leading Luther College (Iowa) to the school's first-ever NCAA Division III national tournament berth.
