Volleyball's Jozsef Forman Promoted To Associate Head Coach
Sept. 24, 2010
AUBURN, Ala. - Auburn volleyball assistant Jozsef Forman has been promoted to associate head coach, head coach Wade Benson announced Friday. Forman is in his first season with the Tigers after joining the volleyball coaching staff in April.
"Jozsef has become an integral part of the Auburn volleyball program's rise to success early this season," Benson said. "His knowledge on the court and his recruiting prowess will help Auburn become a SEC power and will aid this year's team in reaching our goals."
At Auburn, Forman has helped guide the team to its best start since 1999 as the Tigers stand at 10-4 overall. With Forman's assistance, the Tigers have become one of the conference's top hitting teams as the team is third behind nationally-ranked Tennessee and LSU with a.253 attack percentage. That mark also has the team in the nation's top 50.
"This is a great honor," Forman said. "I would like to thank Wade Benson and Director of Athletics Jay Jacobs for giving me this new opportunity. The admiration my family and I have for Auburn's stellar reputation is without words. I am nothing short of blessed to be a part of Auburn's growth as a program, both in the SEC and on the national stage."
Forman joined the Auburn staff after serving a three-year stint as the head coach at the University of New Orleans. He has also served as an assistant coach at Mississippi State and Baylor and was a club and national team coach in Hungary.
He is a 1989 graduate of the Hungarian University of Physical Education where he also earned a master's degree in physical education and sports science. He also holds a FIVB International Coaching Certificate.
