The NCAA officially changed the name of the sport to beach volleyball in 2015, hosting the first NCAA Division I championship the next year. Courtesy of SLU AthleticsHAMMOND, La. – Southeastern Louisiana Athletics ushered in a new era Wednesday as athletic director Jay Artigues announced the hiring of Jeremy White, a native of Vidor, Texas, as the head of the university’s volleyball program and the addition of beach volleyball as an NCAA sport. White, whose hire is pending approval of the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors, comes to Southeastern from Northwestern Oklahoma State University in Alva, Oklahoma. He replaces Jim Smoot, who retired last month to wrap up a 39-year coaching career, the last six of which were spent at Southeastern. “I’m really excited for the opportunity to take over the volleyball program at Southeastern,” White said. “With lots of talent in the state, quality facilities and a supportive athletic administration, the key pieces are in place for success.” From 2011 to 2013, White led the Lady Bucs to an 81-28 record, three-straight District 1-5A Championships and back-to-back appearances in the State Quarterfinals (2012 and 2013).

Many of the players he trained and coached at the club level went on to play collegiate volleyball after playing in his system. While at McNeese, White helped guide the Cowgirls to back-to-back appearances in the conference tournament. He coached three All-Southland performers, two of which – Malina Sanchez (2015 Louisiana Player of the Year) and Bridget Justis (2016 Louisiana Libero of the Year) – also earned top honors from the Louisiana Sports Writers Association. WHAT THEY’RE SAYING ABOUT NEW SOUTHEASTERN COACH JEREMY WHITE”Jeremy will turn Southeastern volleyball into a winner. He learned from Lee McBride, one of the best coaches in the country, who also mentored me. Jeremy not only knows the game very well and how to train at a high level but he instills a great team culture. The players there will want to play hard from him.” – Jim Barnes, Head Coach, Tulane University SWEET 16Beach volleyball becomes the 16th NCAA sport sponsored by Southeastern.

United may regret sacking Jose now the ‘dinosaur’ is roaring back with Spurs

first_imgJosé Mourinho hails Dele Alli’s work-rate after Tottenham star continues resurgence with double vs BournemouthNobody remembers the dull games. Nobody remembers that the 1999 Champions League Final was the worst on record until injury time.How two years after that triumph Sir Alex himself admitted this trophy could not be won with cavalier football anymore.Even he became pragmatic in the pursuit of another triumph in club football’s greatest competition.The treble team was the perfect storm, but not always the norm.Ole Solskjaer is trying to recreate something that was done with players like Ryan Giggs, David Becham, Roy Keane, Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole.With defenders like Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic and the other great players Sir Alex bought or nurtured.It can’t be done with this current group no matter how he gets them to play.Still Mourinho achieved great things with the players at his disposal.In two seasons at the helm of United he won the League Cup, Europa League, came second in the Premier League and reached an FA Cup Final.There is no asterix against those achievements saying: ‘Ah yes but he didn’t play football the right way.’What is the right way?In the Europa League Final in Stockholm against Ajax he did it the right way.That night he faced a young, vibrant, short passing, high pressing, Dutch side who would hound you in your own half.So what did Mourinho do. He told his players to launch the ball into the opposition’s half as soon as they got it.High and long , to utilise the height and ability to hold the ball up that Marouane Fellaini could possess and the speed of Marcus Rashford.3It worked a treat. The Ajax coach spoke afterwards as if Mourinho had cheated, but there was only one coach holding the trophy and taking the acclaim of his fans.Just as he did after the most exciting final at the new Wembley when they beat Southampton 3-2 to win the League Cup.He told everyone that coming second in the league the following season was one of his greatest achievements, and people scoffed. They now know what he means.Think about it. This time 18 months ago,United were better than Liverpool and Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs.There is no doubt The Special One could be the awkward one too, but still the club allowed a situation to develop where five months after finishing second he was sacked.They knew better when he wanted to sell the over hyped Anthony Martial, better when he said they had to push the boat out to get Harry Maguire.Better when they failed to fully back him in his problems with expensive flop Paul Pogba.When he said in LA two summers ago that Pogba needed to start playing for United as he did for France in winning the World Cup he was deemed spiteful.He wasn’t, he was spot on.3LATEST MAN UTD NEWSLive Blogunited newsMan Utd news LIVE – Latest updates from Old TraffordMAN DOWNUtd and City face TWO-WEEK summer if they reach Euro finals before new Prem seasonDEPAY CHARTMan Utd flop Memphis used computer data and analytics to quit Old TraffordODS ON?Ighalo to leave Man Utd TOMORROW unless dramatic extension can be reachedPEA SHOOTERHernandez: Man Utd ‘still haunted’ by ‘mistake’ of Moyes replacing FergusonDEVIL’S ADVOCATEEx-Man Utd star Chadwick dreaded being picked for Keane’s team in trainingMourinho refused to indulge Pogba. Now he is allowed to do what he wants including picking and choosing which holiday destinations to go to while he recovers from an ankle injury.Another criticism laid at Mourinho’s door was that he put the brakes on this fabled Academy production line of players.Yet it was he who took the kids on the pre-season tour of the States 18 months ago.He who promoted Scott McTominay into the first team.Mourinho had his faults but he did a great job for Manchester United.One early signs are telling us he is now doing for Spurs.The ‘dinosaur’ is roaring again and his next victim could well come tomorrow night. WHEN Jose Mourinho marches down the touchline tomorrow night Old Trafford might well wonder why on earth they let this man go.There were no tears spilt when 11 months ago he was shown the door at this great club.3 Jose Mourinho won the Europa League with Man Utd and club has gone into decline sinceCredit: Getty – ContributorJose Mourinho has won three out of three since taking over at Tottenham last monthApparently he had sucked the life out of the place, failed to tap into it’s DNA, played boring football, some even said he was man past his time, a footballing dinosaur.A quick look at what he achieved and where they are now might cause a rethink.A former national team boss in the Old Trafford press room on Sunday summed it up about the current state at Manchester United.He had just completed his media duties for the 2-2 draw with Aston Villa having also been at Bramall Lane for the 3-3 the Sunday before.“I tell you what,” he said “The games are certainly exciting. As long as you are not bothered about the results.”And that’s the problem at United, having to please two camps. Those who want free flowing football and the need to get results.Because you can’t always do both.To listen to some Manchester United fans you would think every game was won 4-3 under Sir Alex Ferguson with two goals in injury time from a team filled with Academy graduates.last_img read more

No 12 role for Dan Carter

first_imgThe South African first five-eighth has been signed on a four-year contract, with the club announcing the deal on Tuesday night.Lambie, 26, who has 56 caps for the Springboks – the last being in November, 2016, has been able to secure an early release from his contract with the Sharks Super Rugby side and will join the French side from November 1, subject to passing a medical.”This world-class flyhalf is signed as an ‘additional player’ and his signature completes the Racing recruitment campaign,” the club said in a statement on their website.Lambie has endured a torrid time with injuries in recent years, including two major concussions, the latest in May that left him sidelined for months as he battled with headaches, light sensitivity in his eyes and neck problems.His move to France does not affect his availability for the Boks as he has passed the 30-cap threshold for overseas-based players to be eligible for selection.While also able to play fullback, it’s the No 10 spot which Lambie is likely to take over at Racing, with the club having recently made it clear they were on the lookout for fresh talent in the pivot spot.Carter, 35, is in the third and final year of his contract and he already began the Top 14 season at second five-eighth- the position he first came into the All Blacks in, back in 2003 – as 33-year-old former French international Remi Tales took the reins at first-five.Keeping the goalkicking duties, Carter kicked two conversions and two penalties from No 12 in Racing’s season-opening 25-21 home win over Castres​ Olympique. He was then reinstated at first-five and Tales was unused on the bench in the 23-19 away loss to Agen, before Tales was back at 10 and Carter wasn’t in the 23 in last weekend’s 25-6 away win over Brive.

first_imgIt was something that the Canarian coach needed in his squad, put in crisis by the numerous casualties that the red-headed ones suffer from the beginning of this season.
