One of the greatest liberos of all time, Aleksey Verbov, took over the bench of Kuzbass.


Aleksey Verbov, who recently resigned from the post of the head coach of Zenit-Kazan, will be at the helm of Kuzbass next season. The one-time FIVB World Championship and a two-time CEV EuroVolley Best Libero during his playing career revealed this information to the local website from Kazan, Tatar-inform, himself.

“Yes, there’s already an agreement with Kuzbass, although the contract hasn’t been signed yet. The deal will be for one year. And after that, we’ll see,” Verbov, who has just finished his first year as a head coach ever, said. He replaced Romanian expert Gheorghe Crețu.

Kuzbass took the bronze medal in the 2019/20 Russian Championship that had to be prematurely stopped due to coronavirus pandemic.

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

All this because volleyball is not e real professional sport and many clubs are managed with people with (almost) zero experience and knowledge in volleyball. And they manage money from state companies or government directly. Do not expect that that people will think differently. That is why volleyball will never move to another level and will always have some small “make up” in the future Reply

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
