The only news that matters is that I was offered the professional job I talked about getting short-listed for previously. And I accepted the offer. The club is Svedala in Sweden. Once the details are finalized I will talk about things more specifically – probably next week.

In the meantime, for those who might be interested, below is a list of all the volleyball coaching jobs I applied for in the last six months. Some of them I knew I had no shot at, but put my resume in because it got my name out there for potential future consideration. Other positions no doubt were already filled before they were even posted. So while the list below is long – perhaps depressingly so from a job-seeker’s perspective – only part of it is jobs I was actually ever really in potential consideration for on some level. Those in red are ones I either got a rejection note from or otherwise found out the job was filled.

      Congrats! Hope you’ll have a great experience in Sweden.
      And as I promised that I would come to a match if you got a job in Germany, well Svendala is closer for me than Straubing. 😉

        Thanks. I’ll hold you to that. 🙂

      Hi John,

      First of all good luck with your Sweden VB Club, I hope transition to that tape of volleyball will be smooth for you.

      Also how did you find out about potential coaching job openings in this European countries?

        Thanks Marko.

        Mainly I heard about the European openings through my coaching contacts there. Unfortunately, there isn’t a central listing for them in the way there is in the States with college coaching jobs.

Please share your own ideas and opinions.
