Kiraly, Speraw Re-Sign with USAV Through 2024

USA Volleyball is thrilled to announce that they have extended the contracts of Karch Kiraly and John Speraw, the head coaches of the indoor U.S. National Teams, through 2024.

Karch Kiraly: A Successful Journey

Karch Kiraly took on the role of Women’s National Team head coach in September 2012, following his tenure as assistant coach from 2009-2012. During his leadership, the U.S. Women achieved remarkable milestones, including winning their first-ever Olympic gold medal in Tokyo. They also hold the title of three-time defending champions of the FIVB Volleyball Nations League (VNL) and claimed silver at the 2019 FIVB World Cup. As the top-ranked team in the world, Kiraly’s guidance has been invaluable.

Under Kiraly’s mentorship, the U.S. Women’s team clinched the 2014 FIVB World Championship title and the 2016 Olympic bronze medal. Kiraly’s passion for the sport and dedication to his team is evident in his desire to continue the journey towards success. He expressed his excitement for the opportunity to work with a group of talented individuals who are committed to their craft and strive for exceptional team performance.

John Speraw: Shaping the Men’s National Team

John Speraw assumed the role of Men’s National Team head coach in early 2013, after serving as an assistant since 2007. The U.S. Men’s team has achieved significant success under Speraw’s leadership, winning bronze medals at the Rio Olympic Games, the 2018 and 2019 VNL tournaments, as well as the 2018 FIVB World Championship and the 2019 World Cup.

Prior to the Rio Olympic Games, Speraw guided the U.S. Men to victories at the 2014 FIVB World League and the 2015 World Cup. He values the opportunity to work closely with the athletes and build strong relationships within the team. Reflecting on the Tokyo Olympic Games, where the team fell short of their expectations, Speraw is determined to rectify their performance and give it another shot in future competitions.

USA Volleyball’s Confidence in Kiraly and Speraw

USA Volleyball President and CEO, Jamie Davis, expressed his confidence in both Kiraly and Speraw as they lead the national teams into the Paris quad. Davis recognized the immense momentum of the U.S. Women’s team after their historic gold medal win and believes that under Kiraly’s leadership, they will be strong contenders in 2024. He also acknowledged the challenges faced by the U.S. Men’s team in 2021 but praised Speraw for consistently leading the team in the years leading up to the recent events. Davis firmly believes that Speraw possesses the necessary qualities to guide the men’s team towards medal contention in the upcoming years.
