In honor of the Pac-10's 25th anniversary of women's sports, the conference caught up with the winningest head coach in the history of women's volleyball and former Bruin skipper Andy Banachowski.
A link to the video interview with Banachowski is available here.
Banachowski retired on June 30 with a career record of 1,106-301, the most wins in the history of women's volleyball. He guided the Bruins for 43 campaigns and for every season of the women's volleyball program's existence with the exception of the two years following his graduation.
The first women's volleyball coach inducted into the National Volleyball Hall of Fame, Banachowski led the Bruins to six national championships and 11 NCAA Final Fours. Under his tutelage, UCLA women's volleyball earned 42 AVCA All-American honors, five Pac-10 Players of the Year, three Honda Award winners and one National Player of the Year.
A seven-time National Coach of the Year and five-time Pac-10 COY, Banachowski coached a total of 22 Bruins that trained with the U.S. National Team following their UCLA careers.
