John Chang was named the fourth head women's volleyball coach in Felician College/University history in July 2014. He guided the 2018 Golden Falcons to school records of 13 victories and eight Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference wins. Felician reached the CACC playoffs for the first time since 2013 and extended eventual champion Holy Family University to five sets in its quarterfinal loss.

Early in Chang's first season of 2014, Felician swept a tri-match for the first time in program history, defeating Goldey-Beacom College and Bowie State University at home on Sept. 20. In 2015, Chang's Golden Falcons won seven matches, the school record to that point. During the 2017 campaign, he set the Felician record for career coaching victories. 

Chang spent the 2017 men's season as the head coach at Sarah Lawrence College, delivering the first victory in Gryphon history. He has previous collegiate experience at Polytechnic University, guiding the Blue Jays' women's and men's squads from 2005-06 to 2007-08. He inherited a women's program that had won one match in 2004 and posted a three-year won-lost record of 46-33. He was named the Skyline Conference Coach of the Year in 2007 after his team went 22-8.

Chang won 26 matches in three years leading the Blue Jay men. He was a women's assistant at Kean University in 2009 and 2010.

Chang came to Felician following two seasons as the head girls' coach at Cranford High School. He spent 2018 as a girls' assistant at West Orange High School, helping the Mountaineers to an 18-6 record and the Super Essex Conference American Division regular-season title in their first varsity season, and will assist the girls' varsity and girls middle school teams at Golda Och Academy (GOA) of West Orange in 2019. On the boys' side, Chang was the head coach of the GOA varsity from 2005-18, winning two division championships, and is entering his second year as an assistant with West Orange High.

Chang is the director of the Conquest Elite Volleyball Club, which he established in Cranford in August 2013. 

Chang began his undergraduate studies at Rutgers University-Newark in the mid-1990s before earning a bachelor's degree in social science from Ashford University in 2009. He is tri-lingual (Korean, Spanish), and is certified by IMPACT USA Volleyball. He resides in Cranford with his wife, Jaclyn, daughter, Rachel, who attends Rutgers University, and son, Evan.
