After leaving the men's Canadian national team in 2016, Glenn Hoag is set to take over the team in 2019 again!

 

He will replace Stephane Antiga at the helm of the team.

"I have a strong connection to the men’s team, and I’m looking forward to building on the progress made since 2016 under Stephane’s direction... The next two years are crucial and will require a lot of work, but I have confidence in the staff, including assistant coach Dan Lewis, and the players that we are all focused on the goal of qualification and strong performances on the world stage," says Hoag.

At the Olympic Games 2016, Glenn finish as a fifth-placed team. Over the past two years, the men’s team finished third 2017 World League and seventh in 2018 Volleyball nations League and ninth in the recent FIVB Men’s World Championship.

"Glenn has successfully worked with the program as a coach since 2006 and resuming duties as head coach will ensure continuity until Tokyo 2020. The next 18 months will be an exciting time for the men’s program," said Julien Boucher, Volleyball Canada’s indoor high-performance director.

ITA M: Lube stay without a head coach – Medei resigns!

I agree with almost all you said. But the thing with grebennikov is much more difficult. Grebennikov is French and Lube desperately needed one italian libero to make space for Leal. They chose good, but this guy played before for Padova (if I am not wrong) without any pressure to win. Reply

ITA M: Lube stay without a head coach – Medei resigns!

Unfortunately, this was expected. I was surprised this hasn't happened after last season and 5 lost finals. It's always a coach that pays the price since it is easier to fire a coach vs the whole team.

It was the same in Perugia at the beginning of last season, when Atanasijevic was injured and didn't play so Perugia lost few games in the row. Sirci immediately fired Kovac, who made that team and save them previous season and brought Bernardi. Coincidentally Atanasijevic recovered at the same time and Perugia started winning. And glory goes to Bernardi :)

I love Lube but they simply have too many good players on the team and they need a coach who is a good psychologist. After losing 6 finals, they have a serious problem.

After their game vs Zenit, when they saved 8 match points, I expected them to walk over Trentino in finals. But they were nowhere to be found.
Lubre fired Christensen to bring Bruno, which was the mistake in my opinion. Christensen was the soul of that team after playing so many years for Lube.

They did an unfair thing to Sada by bringing Simon who was under contract with Sada. They brought Leal as well. He is a great player but he doesn't fit into already established attack formation with Sokolov as 1st attack option and Juantorena as 2nd.

Juantorena is 33 so he should have been replaced with Leal who is 29 if that is a long-term strategy.

But what hurt Lube the most is the fact they lost Grebennikov, who is the best libero in the world. Not sure what happened here, but Lube couldn't find a proper replacement and that is where their defense has a problem.

POL M: The Italian international to join Budowlani Lodz?

Rather, she can play Chemik, because Abbondazza is an Italian trainer. Reply
