Welcome to the 2015 season of "Up Close" on CollegeSoccerNews.com, where host Adam Zundell brings you the voices of the game — players and coaches — straight to you, unfiltered, exclusively on CollegeSoccerNews.com.
In this episode, Zundell talks to UC Irvine head coach Chris Volk. After spending numerous seasons on the sideline as an assistant coach, Volk took over the Anteaters last year and helpd direct the team to the Sweet 16. This year, he'll return a strong nucleus of defensive players and will rely on some inexperienced players to put the ball in the back of the net to help the team try and make another deep posteason run. Volk talks about all that and more in this week's show.
