Ron Sweet is the head volleyball coach at Wofford University. I met him years ago when he was a very successful coach at a junior college. He’s personable, funny, and engaging…all things that I’m sure help him when he’s out on the recruiting trail.
Sweet was twice honored as the NJCAA Division II National Coach of the Year. He was also Region Coach of the Year six times and Arrowhead Conference Coach of the Year on seven occasions. He has coached 14 First Team All-Americans, 12 First Team Academic All-Americans, and seven AVCA First Team All-Americans. Not bad, huh?
Things to look forward to from our conversation:
- The power of passion for your sport
- Turning around a losing program
- On coaching women
See you back here next time!
Join me in a series of interviews with successful coaches. I believe what we learn from our coaching peers can be applied to our teams, our recruiting efforts, and how we behave as professionals. These interviews will be less Q & A and much more philosophical in nature, keep coming back to see who I’m talking to and what they’ve got to say!
