The Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship side Jastrzębski Węgiel informed that they released Roberto Santilli from his duties of a head coach.


The Management Board of Jastrzębski Węgiel decided to part ways with the head coach Santilli because of the unsatisfactory level of the team’s play and the lack of expected results. At the same time, the PlusLiga team informed it will try to find the new solution for an empty post as soon as possible. The fitness coach, Australian Luke Reynolds, will take charge of the role of the head coach until then.

So far, Jastrzębski have 3-5 record in the 2019/20 PlusLiga regular season. Interestingly, the Italian expert Santilli was sacked on the night when his team achieved the second successive win in the competition: 3-2 vs. BKS Visła Bydgoszcz, on November 19.

This was the second mandate of Santilli in Jastrzębski. The first time, he led the team from 2007 to 2010 and won the national Cup and became the league's runner-up. He again joined the club this summer, coming from Indykpol AZS Olsztyn.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
