Jared Goldberg recently completed his first year as a graduate assistant with the Ole Miss volleyball team. Goldberg assisted the team with video, practice and match stats and daily operations needs.
Goldberg came to Oxford from Grand Canyon University where he was the volleyball team rep and vice president of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. Prior to his time at Grand Canyon University, Goldberg played at the University of the Pacific where the Tigers reached a national ranking of No. 13. With the Rebels, Goldberg helps with video scouting and does statistical work during matches and practices.
Goldberg interned with the USA women's national volleyball team in Anaheim, Calif., over the summer of 2013, and was a captain with the 2013 Team USA Maccabiah Games held in Israel. The team finished fourth after falling in five sets to Argentina in the bronze medal match.
In his senior year with Grand Canyon, Goldberg served match point in a 3-2 victory over Ohio State in the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association quarterfinals. The win was the first playoff victory in the program's history, and ensured the Antelopes' first winning record. A setter who played primarily as a serving specialist, Goldberg appeared in 27 of the 32 matches played as a senior. As a junior, the Antelopes hosted the program's first home playoff match in the school's history.
Goldberg brings a wealth of volleyball knowledge with him to Ole Miss. Coming from a volleyball-rich family, Goldberg's father, Barry, is in his 25th year as the head coach at American University, while his mother, Bonnie, runs the Metro American Volleyball Club in Washington, D.C., as well as the Capitol Hill Classic volleyball tournament. Jared's older sister, Arielle, helps run the Bay to Bay volleyball club in northern California, and his younger brother, Mitchell, is a freshman lacrosse player at the University of Richmond.
Jared served as a volunteer assistant at American University in 2010 in which the team finished 18-13, losing in the Patriot League finals. He also coached the Arizona Fear under-14 boys team in 2011.
Jared has coached at volleyball camps for many years at American University and the University of North Carolina, as well as the 2013 summer camp at Ole Miss.
