The All-America duo of Jace Pardon and Sarah Wickstrom fell in the pairs quarterfinals
A former professional beach and indoor volleyball player, Brian Corso is married to Florida State sand volleyball head coach Danalee Corso. He and his wife form a cohesive coaching tandem that has produced two consecutive appearances for FSU in the AVCA Collegiate Sand Volleyball National Championships.
Last year, FSU had two All-Americans in Jace Pardon and Sarah Wickstrom, and finished third at the 2013 AVCA Collegiate Sand Volleyball National Championships for the second consecutive year. The Seminoles finished 17-4 in the regular season in dual match play.
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.
In two seasons as the Seminoles' assistant head coach, Corso has helped the Seminoles become a national power in the growing sport. FSU is returning four of its top five teams from the 2013 season and will look to challenge for the National Championship again.
Brian Corso has already coached five All-Americans in two seasons. In addition to Pardon and Wickstrom capturing the honors in 2013, Aurora Davis (formerly Newgard), Jekaterina Stepanova and Brittany Tiegs were part of the inaugural sand volleyball All-America class in 2012.
Corso played collegiate indoor volleyball at San 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 volleyball team in 2009 in addition to his career as a beach volleyball fitness and conditioning specialist since 2003.
He also coached the Costa Rican junior national squad from 2006-08 and was a USA junior national beach team coach during that same span.
He and Danalee are the proud parents of two young children, Camryn and Asher.
