Arizona State University girls volleyball head coach Jason Watson gets a warm welcome to the Arkansas Razorback team and staff as he takes the head coach position. Watson is very well known by many coaches across the nation, he coached eight seasons with Arizona State and three seasons with BYU. Before the start of his season with BYU in 2005, he was an assistant coach for Arkansas State, Montana State and Kansas State. In 2008 he was named head coach of the Sun Devils Volleyball program. Not only does Watson have 200 wins under his belt for these eleven seasons, but has led ASU to a total of four NCAA tournaments and BYU to three. Watson and his ASU team started the season strong with 15 straight wins, which is the best start to the season the Sun Devils have had since 1973. In his entire career with the Sun Devils, the team’s record was 129-126 and out of his eleven seasons in head coaching 200-147. He was also the head coach for the U.S. collegiate national team as they did an exhibition tour in China. Watson will be taking the place of Robert Pulliza who resigned in December as he was claimed to be verbally abusing his players.
