OXFORD, Miss. -- Ronaldo Pacheco, who spent the past two seasons at Tulsa as an assistant coach, has joined the Ole Miss volleyball staff in the same position, head coach Steven McRoberts announced Friday.

A former professional volleyball player in Brazil and Argentina, Pacheco joined the Tulsa coaching staff prior to the 2012 season.

Pacheco also served as an assistant coach on the Brazilian women’s national team from 2004-07 and aided Brazil to a fourth-place finish at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
