Lee Jung-Chul became Korea’s women’s volleyball coach again this year after previously leading the team from 2007 to 2008. He started quickly, helping Korea win silver at the 2015 Asian Championships. Lee first took a coaching role with Korea in 1998, when he was an assistant coach. He held that role again in 2005. The man from Bucheon has coached Korean women’s club side IBK Altos since 2010, leading them to the 2012/13 and 2014/15 V League titles. He coached several other clubs from 1992 to 2003. Lee started sporting a red tie at matches after a successful 2014/15 season in which he wore one. He derives a nickname from a poisonous snake due to his difficult training sessions.
