6 on 6 with South Carolina Head Coach Scott Swanson

Scott Swanson is the Head Volleyball Coach at the University of South Carolina, and a coach I have really enjoyed knowing for the last several years.  Both of us cut our head coaching teeth back in the day when he was at UTEP and I was at Tulsa.  

He went on to Minnesota as an Assistant coach and was a key factor in their great runs deep into the NCAA Championship.  I expect Coach Swanson to quickly build USC into a force in the SEC.

6 on 6 with South Carolina Head Coach Scott Swanson:

What drew you into the profession of college volleyball coaching?

My competitive nature and love for the sport of volleyball


If you could change one thing about the sport of college volleyball, what would that be?
I would slow down the recruiting process so that recruits could take all five of their official visits and then choose a school.

Who is the most famous person you have met and where was it?

Karch Kiraly, he hung out with us at the University of Minnesota for a few hours before doing the color for our match.

Where is your favorite vacation spot?

San Diego


What is the least enjoyable part of your job?

Constant recruiting travel!


Sideout scoring or Rally scoring?

Sideout scoring, I am a bit old school!
