Marc Turiano was named the head men's and women's volleyball coach in 2017. He made an immediate impact with the men's team, guiding the team to its most overall (15) and conference wins (10) in program history. The Pride finished second in the league, equaling its best league finish in program history.
The program moved into the Great Northeast Athletic Conference in 2018, and Turiano has worked to make the team competitive within the new league. The Pride did place five student-athletes on the Academic All-GNAC list in 2019, the most by the men's volleyball program in a single season. He currently serves as the GNAC representative on the AVCA Division III Head Coaches Committee.
Originally from Andover, Mass., Turiano joined the Regis staff after four seasons as head women's volleyball coach at Salem State University. In his three seasons for the Vikings, he compiled the second-most wins and conference tournament appearances in program history. His tenure at Salem State was his second with the program, serving as assistant coach from 2008-11.
Before his most recent post at Salem State, Turiano was the assistant women's coach for two seasons at Missouri State University-West Plains, a Division I NJCAA school. While there, the team was consistently ranked in the Top 20 nationally and had one second-team All-American and two academic All-Americans.
Turiano attended Fordham University in New York before receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in physical education from Salem State in 2010, graduating Summa Cum Laude. During that time, he coached for the Fordham Preparatory School men's team and was an assistant for Salem State while earning his degree. He also coached at the North Shore Junior Olympic Volleyball Club.
Turiano began his playing career at perennial power St. John's Prep and returned to his alma mater in 2009, guiding the team to the state championship match that season, the state semifinals in 2010, and the state playoffs in 2011. The team finished the 2010 season ranked No. 39 in the ESPN Rise Volleyball Fab 50 rankings. He also helped develop numerous all-conference, four all-state, one Massachusetts Player of the Year and multiple all-scholastic award winners.
Turiano also holds a Master of Education from Northcentral University in San Diego.
