Team USA coach upbeat on Philippine volleyball

MANILA, Philippines – Karch Kiraly — one of the world’s best coaches — doesn’t see any reason why the Filipinos won’t make it big in the international stage.

Barely a day after arriving in Manila to grace the opening ceremonies of Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga (PSL) Grand Prix on Saturday, Kiraly addressed a small group of reporters, coaches and PSL officials to declare his faith on the Filipino brand of volleyball.

US women's volleyball team head coach Karch Kiraly is here upon the invitation of Philippine Superliga president Ramon Suzara.
Kiraly is no ordinary guest.

The 56-year-old University of California-Los Angeles alumnus is the head coach of the United States women’s volleyball team, the same squad who copped the bronze medal in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics last year.

He assumed the coaching chore from Hugh McCutcheon in 2012 shortly after serving as his assistant in the London Olympics.

Prior to that, he won a pair of Olympic gold medals in indoor and another gold in beach volleyball competition, becoming only the fourth player to win an Olympic medal both as a player and as a coach.
