Mike Sealy, one of the finest setters in UCLA volleyball history, begins his third season as a full-time assistant men's volleyball coach.
As a senior in 1993, Sealy led the Bruins to a 24-3 record, a conference championship and their 14th NCAA title. He earned All-America and Player of the Year honors that season while setting the Bruins to an attack percentage of .420, an NCAA record. He also was named co-Most Outstanding Player of the 1993 NCAA Tournament.
Sealy, who graduated from UCLA in 1993 with a degree in Physiological Science, played professionally for several years in Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, and Puerto Rico.
"Mike Sealy played professionally for 10 years and established himself as one of the premier setters in the world," said Head Coach Al Scates.
In addition to training the UCLA setters, Sealy helps to break down film, identify recruits, and monitor the players' academic progress. In 2003, 14 different players earned spots on the Director's Honor Roll, and Scott Morrow was awarded a Pacific-10 Conference Postgraduate Scholarship. Last year, all five of UCLA seniors graduated on time.
Sealy, 33, served one season as Cal State Northridge's volunteer assistant coach in 2000 and worked the 2001 season at UCLA in the same capacity. At Santa Monica High School, Sealy earned Ocean League MVP honors as a junior and was a two-time All-CIF selection.
Mike and his wife, Romey, live in Santa Monica.
