Luka Slabe has become the first Slovenian coach to be put forward as a potential Volleyball Coaching Wizard. He spent a couple of years as head coach for his country’s men’s national team, but stepped down earlier this year to focus on his club coaching and spend more time with his family.
From the CEV website:
Slabe had started his career in Kropa and after only one season in the business he was promoted to head coach of Slovenia’s vice-champions, Calcit KAMNIK. He went on to mentor Slovenia’s major Volleyball force, ACH Volley LJUBLJANA, a team that has become a regular feature also on the elite CEV Volleyball Champions League. Slabe stayed with ACH Volley until the beginning of the 2014-2015 season before moving to Austria to coach the team of Posojilnica AICH/DOB that this year made their second consecutive appearance in the CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League – Men.
Luka played collegiately at BYU where no doubt he saw some pretty good coaching playing for Hall of Famer Carl McGown.
