UH is competing in USC's Fall tournament this Friday and Saturday at the Galen Center, 12-team event
Not officially announced but Siki Zarkovic's dad Milan is the new assistant.
He finally got in after quite a delay last week due to the LAX airport problems.
He has quite the coaching resume ... head coach of Serbian junior national team and Al Ain VC in the Serbian VB Federation.
this is what I got off the FIVB.org.
He started his playing career in 1976 for VC “Ribnica” from Kraljevo, where he stayed until 1982. He then moved to VC “Partizan” in Belgrade where he managed to become the captain of the team. He remained with the club until 1989.
His coaching career began in 1990 in Cyprus. Up until 1992 he was the coach of VC “Anorthosis” from Limassol. From 1992 until 1997 he coached in VC “Enosis Paralimni”, and from 1997 until 2000, in VC “Pafiakos Silogos Athlopaidion”. During the time he spent in Cyprus, he won several Championship and Cup titles. In 2000 returned to Serbia as coach of VC “Partizan.” For the next four seasons he remained with the club, and won both the Championship and Cup titles. Then he went abroad once again this time to Tunisia to VC “CSS Sfax”, where he managed to win both the Championship and Cup titles again.
He again returned to “Partizan” in 2006 and remains in the position until now. In 2010/2011 season he won the Championship title with the team from Serbia’s capital city. In the meantime, as of 2001, Zarkovic has been the coach of the junior men’s team.
Over the years, he managed to obtain some notable results with the national team. He won the gold medal at the Balkan Championships three times, and finished as the runner-up on three further occasions. He led his team to fourth place at the 2004 European Championship in Zagreb, Croatia, and to fifth place in 2006 in Kazan, Russia. The biggest success of the Junior Men’s national team was the bronze medal at the 2010 European Championship. In addition Zarkovic participated with his team at the World Championships twice, and finished seventh both times.
