    Don’t know why he’s retiring, looks like he could still play. Killian’s brother Kevin plays for the French team too.

    It is a surprising decision for the coach of the French volleyball team just over four years before the 2024 Paris Olympics. But Tillie was offered a contract that was financially difficult to turn down, at least three years with Osaka, one of the two major clubs in the Japanese Championship.

    I believe this information to be current, though published quite a while ago. I did not spend a great deal of time on research!

    Gonzaga’s international families, the Tillie’s and the Ayayi’s won three medals altogether in the 2021 Olympics. Tommy Lloyd’s recruiting is already a nostalgic memory for me.
    Bonjour tristesse.
