Volleyball legend Charles ‘Karch’ Kiraly, widely considered the best player of all time, was promoted from assistant to head coach of the US women’s team in 2012. His first two years as coach in the World Grand Prix helped USA earn two sixth place finishes. Their first World Grand Prix gold medal came last year in Omaha, on home soil. Kiraly also found success as a coach in other tournaments, leading the United States to gold at the 2014 FIVB Volleyball World Championship and wins at the Pan American Cup and the NORCECA Continental Championship in 2013. As a player, Kiraly is the only player to have won Olympic gold in both indoor and beach volleyball.
