Brian Imperiale joins head coach Courtney Draper's staff for the 2012-13 volleyball season
Draper added Imperiale to her staff as an assistant after he spent the past three seasons with Florida Southern College. Imperiale's duties with the Bulls will include recruiting, scouting and statistical analysis on top of his role of helping to guide USF's talent on the court.
Imperiale enjoyed a "hands-on" experience with Florida Southern, doing a little bit of everything for Mocs head coach Jill Stephens before moving on to USF.
Imperiale has been heavily involved in club volleyball, coaching with Pinellas Heat from 2003-2010. Imperiale's 2007 Heat team was the first in the club to qualify for the Junior Olympics, and his teams qualified for the rest of his tenure with the program.
In 2010, Imperiale was named the Florida Region Male Coach of the Year. He also coached his 16-and-under team to a second place finish in the open division of the 2010 AAU National Championships.
During his time with Florida Southern, Imperiale opened and was the director for Southern Select Club Volleyball in Lakeland, Fla.
Imperiale also served as an assistant coach for the Team Florida High Performance squad from 2007-2010, and was a head coach for Team Florida HP in 2012. Imperiale's team took home the Youth Division gold medal in 2010, and secured a bronze medal in the Select Division in 2012.
Imperiale earned a bachelor's degree in finance from Florida State in 2002 after playing in the Seminoles' club volleyball program. He is married to Mehryn Imperiale and has two sons, Drew and Sean.
