Coach Peacock has an eclectic and impressive background, ranging from deep space to a pair of poetry books, and his volleyball resume is also worthy of note. He has coached in Texas and California for the past eight years, and has worked with six players now at the Division I level in college.
He has won two USA Volleyball Boys Junior National championships, and also is the women’s assistant varsity and head junior varsity coach at Albany High School, a very successful Northern California prep program.
His post-collegiate career, however, began at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, where he worked for NASA, managing the electrical power system for the International Space Station.
Coach Peacock moved on to teaching, and now does so at Tilden Preparatory School in Albany, where he specializes in math and science.
As a coach, he has developed a specific philosophy. “I am never satisfied because good enough is never good enough and hard work will always beat lazy talent,” he says.”Every player will work hard, discover personal improvement, and have fun. Hard work is fun when it leads to being successful. “
In his spare time, he has published two books of poetry, “For Her Here” and “The Man in Me.”
