BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Head volleyball coach Sherry Dunbar has announced the addition of Matt Fishman to her coaching staff. Fishman will serve as a volunteer coach for the Hoosiers and will help with scouting reports, IU Volleyball camps and assist with practice plans throughout the year.
"We are excited to welcome Matt to the Hoosier family," said Dunbar. "I love the preparation he has taken to ready himself to break into coaching at this level. He has put himself in a great position to learn as much as possible in his time here and help continue to build this program."
"To have the opportunity to join such an amazing program and university is one that I struggle to put into words," said Fishman. "As the son of two Hoosier Alums, the drive to earn my stripes runs deep. I'm looking forward to being able to help build upon such a great tradition."
Fishman, a native of Carmel, Ind. most recently comes from Bishop Chatard High School as an assistant coach of the varsity volleyball program where he helped lead his squad to a 2012 3A State Championship and the school's first 2013 4A Regional title. From 2010-2013, Fishman coached the Indy Junior Volleyball Club and operated as media relations director, web master, assistant recruiting and tournament coordinator and set up and produced live stream events. Fishman was also an assistant coach for the varsity team out of North Central High School while overseeing the junior varsity program as head coach through the 2009-12 seasons.
The Bowling Green State University graduate also brings experience running various camps and clinics, including involvement with KIVA (Kentucky-Indiana Volleyball Academy) Elite Camps from 2009-12. From 2009-11, he provided instruction at the Butler University Junior Bulldog and Nike Elite camps led by current Butler head volleyball coach, Sharon Clark.
Fishman's involvement with the sport of volleyball has occurred off the court as well. He served as the Content Management System Director for the Junior Volleyball Association. Under that title, Fishman developed JVA Dig In Applications and Mini Tournament Apps used by club teams around the country.
