UCLA volleyball coach to lead U.S. Olympic team

By Anne M. Peters

AP Sports Writer

POSTED:



First-year UCLA volleyball coach John Speraw had packed away all of his USA Volleyball gear after the London Olympics, thinking his work with the U.S. men's national team had all but come to an end when he joined the Bruins.

But in the space of the past two weeks, Speraw was pulled into the running as the coach that would lead the U.S. men in the run-up to the 2016 Rio Olympics.

On Monday, he took the job. On Tuesday, he was looking for that packed-away gear to wear at his first news conference.

Speraw, an assistant on the past two Olympic men's teams, will continue on with the Bruins as well as lead the U.S. national team, which is based in Anaheim, Calif.
