A former professional beach and indoor volleyball player Brian Corso is married to FSU sand volleyball head coach Danalee Corso. He and his wife form a cohesive coaching tandem that enjoyed plenty of success in collegiate sand volleyball's initial season in 2012.
Florida State finished third at the AVCA Collegiate Sand Volleyball National Championships and collected three individual All-America honors, while capturing a 15-0 dual match record in the regular season.
FSU pairs won six tournament championships and collected a 208-58-2 overall record. The tandems of Jekaterina Stepanova and Jace Pardon and Aurora Newgard and Brittany Tiegs advanced the semifinals and quarterfinals, respectively, at the ultra-competitive national championships. Stepanova, Newgard and Tiegs were named All-Americans as FSU had three of the nation's 10 award-winners.
Corso played collegiate indoor volleyball at Sand Diego State from 1995-99 and was an assistant coach with the University of San Diego in 2002-03. He played on the AVP Tour and was the head coach of the L.A. College's women's volleyball team in 2009 in addition to his career as a beach volleyball fitness and conditioning specialist since 2003.

He and Danalee are the proud parents of two young children, Camryn and Asher.
