SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Head Coach Jennifer Petrie of the University of San Diego women's volleyball team has announced the hiring of Chris Jackson to the Torero coaching staff. Jackson will begin working with the team this spring.

"We are very excited to announce the addition of Chris Jackson to our coaching staff. His experience with both collegiate volleyball and with the US Men's National Team makes Chris a valuable asset to our program," stated Petrie. "He has tremendous volleyball knowledge and we are looking forward to having him work with our strong returning squad."

Jackson joins the Toreros coaching staff after serving as the technical coordinator for the US Men's Volleyball team for the past three seasons. He will continue on with the US Men's national team through the summer Olympic games this summer, then joins USD fulltime in August.

In his first season with the US Men's team, they finished with a 16-6 record, including a victory at the World Championship Qualifier, a second-place finish at the NORCECA Continental Championship and a sixth-place finish in the FIVB World League.

In 2010, the U.S. Men finished with a 14-7 record, including a sixth place finish at the FIVB World Championship and an eight place in the FIVB World League. He served as an assistant coach at Grand Canyon University in 2009, and prior to that, Jackson served as an assistant coach for both the men's and women's programs at USC, including being a part of the women's 2007 NCAA national tournament semifinalist team. He also served as an assistant coach for the 2008 U.S. Boys' Youth National Team that won the NORCECA Continental Championship.

Jackson was on the coaching staff at Phoenix Brophy Prep High School from 2004-06, which included a state title in 2005. His 16-year old group from the Southern California Volleyball Club finished fourth in the nation.

 

 

Jackson played high school volleyball at Glendale Deer Valley in Arizona. He went on to play at Brigham Young University and was a freshman on its national championship team in 2004. He is a 2007 graduate of Arizona State University.
