In 2006 the Union-Tribune wrote “Ozhan is the key architect of junior volleyball in San Diego County.”

Ozhan Bahrambeygui draws upon twenty seasons of coaching experience as the Director of COAST VBC. He has coached collegiately at both the University of California, Irvine and the University of Wisconsin. Over the years Ozhan has founded or directed three different elite club programs. As a head coach, Ozhan’s teams have won six Junior Olympic medals in the 18 Open and two teams have finished as the #1 ranked team in the nation (most recently the 2014 COAST 18-1 team). Ozhan’s staff has earned seventeen additional Junior Olympic medals for their girls and boys teams while working in his club program.

As a San Diego native, Ozhan has trained ten Union-Tribune and North County San Diego “Players of the Year”, thirty-six “Senior Aces” athletes (previously termed Fab 50), thirteen high school All-Americans, twenty-four Pac-12 players, seven collegiate All-Americans, five AVCA National D1 Players of Week and three NCAA Division I National Champions. In 2016, four of Ozhan’s former players were among the top women on the AVP. In 2010, five COAST players participated in the NCAA Division I Final Four for indoor volleyball. At the prep level, fourteen athletes were named JO All-Americans, and another ten athletes have served on various U.S. age-group national teams. In all, Ozhan has helped place over 200 athletes in four-year volleyball programs, forty-six of which have played at top 25 Division I programs and another forty-three athletes competed for Ivy League schools.
