UCLA’s Scates retiring after 2012 season

May 11th, 2011

Pretty amazing career for ‘Big Al’ He was offered the UH job before Wilton took it.

The release from UCLA

UCLA’s Al Scates, the most successful and longest tenured collegiate volleyball coach in the history of the game, will retire on June 30, 2012 the athletic department announced Tuesday.
Scates will retire after 50 years of service at UCLA with a nation-leading Division I record of more than 1,200 victories. To date he has captured 19 NCAA championships, 21 overall national championships, 24 conference titles and compiled a legacy unmatched by few college coaches in any sport. In 49 seasons, Scates has coached 52 different first-team NCAA All-Americans, 44 U.S. National Team members, 27 Olympians, 26 USVBA All-Americans and seven collegiate Players of the Year.

In addition, he is the only coach to lead three teams to undefeated records (1979, ’82 and ’84), and he has also led the Bruins to three consecutive NCAA titles three times, including four in a row from 1981-84. His teams have recorded 48 playoff appearances and the same number of winning seasons during his coaching era. He guided the Bruins to 46 consecutive winning seasons from 1963-2008.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment
    is added I get three emails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Cheers!

  • Amy August 26, 2019 at 6:34 pm

    Aw, this was a really good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to create a very good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a lot and don’t seem
    to get anything done.

  • Madelaine August 27, 2019 at 8:53 pm

    I’ll right away take hold of your rss feed as I can’t find your email subscription link
    or newsletter service. Do you have any? Please allow
    me know so that I may subscribe. Thanks.

    Hello, Neat post. There is a problem together with your
    web site in web explorer, could test this? IE still
    is the marketplace leader and a big component of
    other folks will leave out your great writing due to this problem.

  • Rodger August 31, 2019 at 1:05 pm

    I think that everything published was very logical.
    But, think about this, what if you added a little information? I ain’t suggesting
    your information isn’t solid, however suppose you added a post title to maybe get people’s attention? I mean Volleyshots – Hawaii News –
    Staradvertiser.com is a little boring. You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write post headlines to get people interested.

    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get
    readers interested about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

    Having read this I thought it was really informative.
    I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this short article together.
    I once again find myself spending a significant
    amount of time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worth it!

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your website. It appears like some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen before. Kudos|
