Florida Atlantic University Head Volleyball Coach Fernanda Nelson named Chris Kushay assistant volleyball coach in the summer of 2016.
"We are extremely excited to have Chris join our FAU family. He is an energetic young coach who will help us continue to build a successful program," said Nelson.
After graduating from UCF, Kushay began his coaching career Wellington High, where he served as assistant coach for the boys’ team. The Wolverines were Florida Class 8A runners-up in his first season and in 2014, he was named head coach of the girls’ team and earned Palm Beach County West Division Coach of the Year honors.
On the club level, Kushay has worked with the Boomers volleyball club since 2013, where he has arranged travel and various other administrative duties in addition to coaching. He led the Elite U17 squad to the USAV Junior National Championships in 2016.
