The Los Angeles County Coroner's Office says former Cal Poly women's volleyball head coach Jon Stevenson died from taking multiple prescription drugs. A Coroner's Office spokesperson said the Stevenson's death was ruled accidental and the official cause of death was acute multiple prescription drug intoxication.
No details of what medication the 54 year old took was provided.
Stevenson was found dead in a Van Nuys home on June 24.
Stevenson coached the Mustangs from 2005 until he was released during the 2011 season in light of sexual harrassment accusations made by his current and former players. He led the Mustangs to two Big West Conference titles and two NCAA Tournament appearances. Stevenson graduated from USCB in 1980.
Stevenson was a pro beach volleyball player for 16 years (1980-1996) and is in the Pro Beach Volleyball Hall of Fame. He is considered one of the best defensive players of all time. In 1983 Stevenson was one of the founding members of the Association of Volleyball Professionals (AVP) and served on the Board of Directors from 1984 until 1995.
