COACHING STAFF

MARIO TREIBIT  |  ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH

Mario Treibit joined the Red Storm volleyball program prior to the 2000 season. He is responsible for game day preparations and assisting with recruiting efforts. Treibit also serves as an on-court technician and assists with the program's film coordination.

Treibit has many years of experience coaching men's national teams in Holland (Interim Head Coach, Associate Head Coach) and Israel (Head Coach) as well as women's national teams in the United States (Assistant Coach) and Puerto Rico (Head Coach).

In the 1992 Summer Olympic Games in Barcelona, Spain, he was instrumental in the Dutch Men's National Team earning a silver medal. In the same year, the Dutch squad reached the finals of the World League - the highest level of men's volleyball in the world. As an assistant coach for the U.S. women's national team, he helped the Americans, who earned the world's top ranking that year, qualify for the 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow, Russia. Four years later, Treibit was a member of the coaching staff that guided the U.S. team to a Silver Medal at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, Calif.

Treibit's leadership and guidance led to three of his former players becoming national team coaches themselves for England, France and Israel. Treibit is also a former head coach of the men's volleyball team at Rutgers University-Newark. Over his four-year tenure with Rutgers, the Scarlet Raiders had a winning percentage of .883 (128-17), appeared in two NCAA Division I national semifinals and won the Eastern Collegiate championship in 1977 and 1980. Treibit was also named the Eastern Collegiate Division I Coach of the Year in 1980. In April 2006, Treibit was inducted into the Rutgers Hall of Fame.

Also a respected official, Treibit has refereed over 250 international matches. Those appointments included serving as the head official at the U.S. Olympic Festival in Los Angeles in 1991, and the head official at the 1994 World Military Championship in San Diego. He was also selected as an official for the Special Olympics World Summer Games in 1995, 1999 and 2003. The games featured over 7,000 participants from all over the world in a variety of events. Treibit's officiating is so well respected that he received the 2009 Wilbur H. Peck Referee Emeritus award, which was presented to him at USA Volleyball's Boyce Banquet.

From 2002-08, Treibit coached the New York City women's volleyball team to five straight gold medals (2004-08) and two silver medals (2002-03) at the Empire State Games. Interestingly, Treibit is the only person in the United States to coach and officiate at the Finals for both the U.S. Open and the NCAA. He's also the only person in the world to earn the highest international title in officiating and an Olympic medal as a coach. In 2011, Treibit was inducted into the USSR Veterans Hall of Fame - which is reserved for top athletes, coaches and media members of USSR descent.

In 2000, Treibit coached the World All-Star Team in footvolley - a 4 v. 4 competition played on a beach volleyball court using all parts of the body but the hands - against the Brazilian team in San Paolo, Brazil.

Treibit earned dual master's degrees in electrical engineering and sports and physical education while in the USSR. He is also fluent in five languages (English, Russian, Romanian, French and Spanish). Treibit currently resides in Flushing, N.Y., with his wife, Tatiana. His youngest son, Ronald, is a student at St. John's University and his eldest son, Alexander, is a graduate of Cornell University.
