Men's National Team Head Coach - Dejan Udovicic

Dejan Udovicic was named Head Coach of the USA Water Polo Men's Senior National Team on May 7, 2013. Udovicic, the former head coach of the Serbian national team, joined USA Water Polo after leading Serbia to a bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympic Games, his teams' 16th medal in the last 17 major championship events. Most recently Udovicic has helped restore the USA Men to among the top ranked teams in international water polo with a fifth place finish at the 2014 FINA World League Super Final and a fourth place finish at the 2014 FINA World Cup.

The most successful coach in Serbian team sports, Udovicic has compiled nearly 500 victories while winning more than 80 percent of all matches. He led the Radnicki Water Polo Club to a Euro Cup title and an appearance in the Serbian National Championship final in their first year of competition.

Udovicic was named Head Coach of the Serbian National Team in June, 2006 following the separation of Serbia and Montenegro. In the six years that followed he built Serbia into a water polo powerhouse. Included in his run was a FINA World Championship in 2009, two FINA World Cup titles in 2006 and 2010, two European Championships in 2006 and 2012, two bronze medals at the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games, and five FINA World League Super Final titles.

In addition to his duties with the national team, Udovicic was also the longtime coach of VK Partizan, one of Serbia's top water polo clubs. From 2000-2009 he led the club to four national championships, four national cups and an appearance in the Euroleague final four. No stranger to the club, Udovicic played for Partizan along with neighboring VK Beograd, in a playing career that spanned more than 10 years.
