TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran U-21 volleyball coach Behrouz Ataei has been reportedly nominated for taking charge of the senior volleyball team.
Ataei inspired Iran to win the 2019 FIVB U-21 World Championship for the first time.
Now, the 50-year-old coach is a candidate to replace Igor Kolakovic.
Islamic Republic of Iran Volleyball Federation (IRIVF) officially terminated the contract with Kolakovic last week.
The coach’s current contract runs until September but the two parties reached an agreement to bring an end to their cooperation following cancellation of the FIVB Volleyball Nations League and 2020 Olympic Games due to the coronavirus outbreak.
