USA Volleyball annonced the hire of former Cougar Mike Wall as an assistant coach for the U.S. Men's National Volleyball Team.
Wall played college volleyball at BYU where he was an opposite from 1997-2002 and led the Cougars to two NCAA National Championship squads. In 2001 and 2002, Wall was named an AVCA First Team All-American. After beating UCLA in three sets to take the 2002 NCAA championship, Wall was named the Final Four MVP and BYU's Most Competitive Athlete.
“Mike has high-level experience both in volleyball and in business,” U.S. head coach John Speraw (Los Angeles) said. “His talents will be invaluable to us both on the court and in the office as we work to build the U.S. Men’s National Team program.”
Wall has already worked with the team during its 2013 FIVB World League matches.
“I’m honored and excited to be joining John, Matt Fuerbringer and the USA men’s volleyball program for the next three years,” Wall said. “Our staff is committed to working hard for this group of athletes. I’m looking forward to the challenge."
