Olympics | Karch Kiraly: The Next Chapter

Volleyblog Seattle authors Volleyball Magazine feature about USA head coach Karch Kiraly

Your Volleyblog Seattle correspondents were honored to write a feature article about Karch Kiraly for the January 2013 issue of Volleyball Magazine.

We interviewed the new USA women's head coach for more than two hours over three sessions. We also spoke with many of his mentors, including Al Scates, Marv Dunphy, Doug Beal, Bill Neville and Hugh McCutcheon.

In a sidebar to the article ("Coaching Women vs. Coaching Men"), Kiraly quotes Washington coach Jim McLaughlin. And two of McLaughlin's former players--Olympians Courtney Thompson and Tama Miyashiro--also weigh in on their new coach.

You can preview a version of the article at Volleyball Magazine's website. Even better, why not subscribe to the magazine ... a great holiday gift for both up-and-coming players and for old pros.

And when you get your print copy ... you'll notice that former Washington All-American Christal (Morrison) Engle is on the cover!
