History
 

Francisco Hervas is in need of some good results with the Spanish team and the 2004 World League is the best place to deliver. Spain hosted the final phase of the last event yet couldnít impose themselves on the heavyweights of world volleyball. And, to make matters slightly worse, Hervasís young team couldnít finish any higher than eighth at the European Championships held in Germany.

Born in 1962, Francisco Hervas was first appointed as Spain's head coach in 1997. A former player, he captained his country to eighth place at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. During his career, he played for several Spanish clubs, including Salesianos Atocha (Madrid), Atletico Madrid, C.V. Benalmadena (Malaga), C.V. Cisneors (Tenerife).

In 1992 he was made responsible for technical matters at the Spanish Volleyball Federation and a year later he became the director of the national coaches department. From 1995 to 1996 he served as assistant coach of the national men's team, before assuming the top position in the following year.
