France name new assistant coach

July 28, 2003 - The French Volleyball Association has announced that Roberto Sernioti from Italy will replace Glenn Hoag as the new assistant coach to Philippe Blain with the national team.

Hoag, the former coach of Paris Volley, returned to Canada at the end of the last season but will return to accompany the French team at the European Championships in Germany later this year in a role yet to be specified.

Forty-one-year-old Sernioti, who has been the coach at the Italian club Cuneo for 12 years, which included a stint with Blain, started in his role with the French team on Sunday but will continue to coach at Cuneo in 2003/2004. It was in 1992/1993 when Sernioti first coached along side Blain and they took their team to seventh in the Italian Championship.
