In her 16th year directing the WWU volleyball program, Diane Flick is the most successful coach in program history, both in terms of wins, averaging 21.1 per season, and percentage.

Flick has guided the Vikings to 10 seasons of 20 or more victories, nine post-season appearances, and seven Great Northwest Athletic Conference championships, receiving GNAC Coach of the Year honors eight times.

With a record of 317-85, Flick ranks 13th among active NCAA Division II volleyball coaches in winning percentage at 78.9 and is 39th in victories.

In 2007, Flick guided WWU to the title match of the NCAA II National Tournament, being named American Volleyball Coaches Association West Region Coach of the Year for the second time. The 26-5 Vikings were ranked a school-best No.2 in the final AVCA poll, reaching the Elite Eight and winning the West Regional, both for the only time in school history.

Under Flick, WWU had a 57-match league winning streak, the fourth longest conference string in NCAA II history, from 2000 to 2004. In 2003, WWU posted the best record in school history, finishing 24-2 (92.3), and reaching the West Regional semifinals.

Flick directed the Vikings to the first three league titles in school history from 2001 to 2003, going unbeaten in league play each of those years. WWU had a school-record 24-match winning streak in 2003.

Flick played collegiately at the University of Washington, where she was a four-year letter winner and was team MVP her junior and senior years. She ranked third in UW history in career assists with 2,624 despite spending nearly half of her time as an outside hitter.

Flick earned a bachelor's degree in speech communications in 1993, and in 1996 became an assistant coach for the Huskies, spending four seasons in that position and being a part of the UW's national tournament appearances in 1996 and 1997. She also co-founded and coached a junior club program that won two 18-year old regional championships in its first three years of existence.

The 43-year old Flick was a three-sport letter winner at Mountain View High School in Vancouver and was the first inductee into the school's Athletic Hall of Fame. She was an all-State selection and Greater St. Helens League Player of the Year in volleyball as a senior.

Flick was inducted into the USA Volleyball Puget Sound Region Hall of Fame in 2011 and completed a master's degree in coaching and sports administration from Concordia-Irvine in 2014. Married to Laurrah Williams and they have daughter Chayse Mingah 9.
