Glenn Hoag, who played on Canada’s men's team from 1981 to 1986, took over as head coach in 2006. His aim has been to replicate the glory of his former team's fourth-place finish at the Lost Angeles 1984 Olympic Games, the best major result in the country's history. Canada's best World League finish under Hoag is fifth in 2013. He has coached several European club teams, most notably Paris Volley in France, which he led to the triple crown in 2001 by winning the national title, the national cup and the European Champions League. Hoag also coached ACH Volley in Slovenia and is currently in charge of Arkas Sport in Turkey. Hoag's sons Chris and Nicholas were on Canada's World League roster. Hoag announced in 2015 that he will be stepping down as coach of the Canadian team by the end of 2016 to focus on another long-term commitment.
