    Leonid Yelin, most recently Head Coach of University of Louisville for 15 years.

    Looks to be a great hire but does anyone know why he left Louisville? Looks like he was pretty successful there.

    And will he be one and done to take another head coaching job somewhere else? I'm not sure why he wouldn't.

    He retired. 61 years old. Hell of a good coach. This is a coup for Kritza to get him to come on board. It instantly makes the team better. I think it speaks to how respected she is in coaching circles, too.

    I figure that either he decided to retire in Boulder (we were ranked #1 among places to retire in a recent magazine) and/or he had an existing relationship with Kritza and wanted to phase into retirement by taking a non-HC job for a few years.

    Nice. Never hurts to have a guy with that sort of experience as long as he is happy to take the backseat at this stage.

    Sound like a great plan to me Buffnik. You may have hit the nail on the head. No matter the reason though, sounds like he will be a big help to the program.

    I have never been to a CU Volleyball game. I have thought about it many times. I may actually take the next step and actually go to one this upcoming season.

    Go Buffs!
