Sam Ojie has accepted an assistant coach position on the LSU volleyball staff announced Wednesday by head coach Fran Flory. He will handle match preparation and scouting along with assisting with player development, training and recruiting.

"We are thrilled to welcome Sam into the LSU volleyball family," head coach Fran Flory said. "He is a wonderful person and a quality coach that is a perfect fit for our program. One of Sam's greatest strengths will be his passion to help our student-athletes succeed in all aspects of life."

Ojie has 13 years of experience as an assistant coach, most recently a five-year stint at Oklahoma where he worked with on and off-campus recruiting as well as scouting and match preparation. The Sooners racked up 96 victories and appeared in four NCAA Tournaments highlighted by a Sweet 16 run in 2010 before being eliminated by eventual national champion Penn State.

The Sooners registered 15 All-Big 12 Conference selections by nine players during Ojie's tenure. Brianne Barker and Suzy Boulavsky picked up All-Big 12 First-Team honors along with American Volleyball Coaches Association [AVCA] All-Central Region accolades in 2010 and 2011, while Barker garnered 2010 and 2011 American Volleyball Coaches Association [AVCA] All-America Third-Team status.

Sallie McLaurin garnered 2010 Big 12 Freshman of the Year and 2011 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, respectively. Both Boulavsky and McLauren also were named AVCA All-American Honorable Mention, while Carlee Roethlisberger secured Big 12 Newcomer of the Year in 2011.

Prior to Oklahoma, Ojie spent the 2006 season at Georgia. He worked with the outside hitters, and Maria Taylor finished second among all SEC players with a 4.52 kills per set average.

As an assistant at UCF during 2004 and 2005 seasons, Ojie also served as interim head coach as Meg Colado was on maternity leave for all but two matches of the 2004 campaign. Two UCF players secured All-Atlantic honors that year.

Ojie began his coaching career at Tulane from 1999-2003. The Green Wave had four hitters collect All-Conference USA citations. Tulane averaged 15.33 kills per set and the Waves hitting percentage increased by 25 points during his five seasons.

Before joining Tulane's staff, Ojie compiled a prolific playing career for Hainaut Volley of Valenciennes in France, Mizuno Mallory based out of London and the Ivory Coast Abidjan University Club. He led his Hainaut squad in 1998 to a Division III title, thanks to his offensive and blocking skills. The Mizuno squad went undefeated in two of Ojie's three seasons with the club, while the Ivory Coast media recognized him as the team's most outstanding player in 1992.

Ojie, a native of Nigeria who is fluent in three languages, graduated from the Command Second School in 1985. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree and received his associate's degree in applied business while at Tulane.
