Davidiuk took over the head coaching reins of his former team in 2019, 13 years after graduating from the school. As a player with the Bears, he was named Championship MVP as he helped lead the team to a 2005 CIS National Championship title– a milestone he’ll be looking to re-create now that he’s behind the bench.
After his time with the university, Davidiuk went to have an impressive playing career professionally overseas, and a international career with the Canadian National Team, eventually serving as the team’s captain. He helped lead the squad to a berth at the 2010 FIVB World Championship.
He re-joined the Bears in 2012 as a part-time volunteer, working his way up to assistant coach, then associate coach, and now serves as the head coach. In 2016, he completed his Masters of Coaching degree.
Volleyball Canada recently had a chance to talk with Davidiuk about his coaching career and some thoughts on coaching in the sport.
