On Tuesday, Oct. 18, it was announced that men’s volleyball head coach Charlie Sullivan was chosen as an assistant coach for the United States Men’s Volleyball National Team at the Pan-American Games.

Sullivan, who has led Springfield to six Molten Division III National Championships, will work with the team’s offense during the course of the tournament, which is scheduled to run through Oct. 31.

In the past, Sullivan has been a part of the national team in 2006 at the World Championships and 2007 at the FIVB World Cup in Japan.

Most recently, Sullivan was a part of the 2009 North, Central America and Caribbean Volleyball Confederaton (NORCECA) Men’s Continental Championships in Bayamon, Puerto Rico.

Sullivan checked in via Skype with Springfield College’s Sports and Information Department earlier this week.

The U.S. national team won its opening match of pool play Monday, defeating Puerto Rico 3-2. However, the U.S. fell in the last two matches: 3-2 to Canada and 3-1 to Brazil.
