Hi, I’m Jim.

The highlight of my coaching career? That’s easy. Who wouldn’t like to win a World Championship? I was honored to coach a fantastic group of young ladies to a gold medal at the 2019 FIVB World Championship in Cairo, Egypt.

I have coached the USA team in six FIVB World Championship events and have been the only USA age group coach of either a male or female team to win medals at the world event, winning silver medals in 2013 and 2015 and the ultimate prize, a gold medal in 2019. 

During my 27 years at Ohio State, I was fortunate to win Big Ten Championships, coach 19 All American players and two AVCA National Players of the Year in Stacey Gordon (2004) and Laura Davis (1994)

Currently, I am a contributor to The Art of Coaching Volleyball coaching education website.   I coordinate the Coaching Certification programs for Art of Coaching, contribute a variety of instructional videos and speak at the Art of Coaching Volleyball clinic series.  Link to AOC Clinics 2020  

At this point in my career, I want to share and collaborate with coaches and their programs and assist in taking teams to the highest level possible.
