USA’s Volleyball Federation and one of the best coach all around the world, have renewed the contract until the end of the 2020 Olympics.
“I’m extremely grateful to Doug Beal and USA Volleyball for entrusting me with this special program, both in 2012, and again now,”Karch Kiraly said. “It’s been a tremendous honor to lead this special group of intelligent, powerful, hard-working, dedicated women, and the great staff that supports them – and it’s a double honor to prepare for battle at the Rio Olympics, knowing we’ll have the opportunity to carry that work forward in the next quadrennial. I first learned what a special privilege it is to represent our unique country as a 16-year-old with the Boys’ Junior National Team at the 1977 World Junior Championships in Brazil – at the same venue where this summer’s Olympic competition will be held.”
Kiraly has been bestowed many honors for his volleyball skills. He was inducted into the International Volleyball Hall of Fame in 2001 and the United States Olympic Hall of Fame in 2008. Kiraly was inducted into the American Volleyball Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2005, followed by the College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA) Academic All-America Hall of Fame in 2009.
