The decision comes after the men’s volleyball team missed qualifying for the Tokyo Olympic Games at the Asian Qualifying Tournament in China. 

Mark Lebedew has been the head coach of the men’s national team since the start of 2017, alongside his coaching role at professional clubs in Europe.

Mark Lebedew: “Being head coach of the national team has been an enormous honour, a massive responsibility, and the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. For the past three years that I have held the post, I have done everything in my power to do justice to the position, the stakeholders, and above all, to the team itself. Unfortunately, despite many minor successes along the way, at the final hurdle we were not able to achieve our goal of qualification for the Tokyo Olympics.”

Volleyball Australia President Craig Carracher: “Mark is one of the most cerebral and analytical coaches I have ever met and for Australian volleyball; the greatest coach we have ever had the privilege to claim as an Australian. I hope he agrees to play a major advisory role in our leadership group.”
