The Iranian Volleyball Federation (IRIVF) dismissed the national team head coach Igor Kolaković.
Following the postponement of the 2020 Olympic Games due to coronavirus pandemic, the IRIVF made this choice. The Montenegrin expert had a valid contract with the IRIVF until the end of the Tokyo Olympics. The Director of the governing body of Iranian volleyball said that they will most likely choose a foreign coach again, which will lead the national team in the Summer Games in 2021.
Kolaković was at the helm of Iran Men since February 2017 when he replaced Argentinean Raúl Lozano.
