Julbe had two stints with Joventut during his career; he guided the team to the 1988 Cup Winners Cup final and won the Spanish Cup in 1997. Over the years he coached a number of Spanish clubs: CB Girona, Basket Zaragoza, Caceres and Andorra. He also spent a year in Mexico with Leon and a year coaching women’s side Uni Girona before joining the FC Barcelona Lassa organization in 2015. Julbe guided U18 FC Barcelona to the 2016 Euroleague Basketball Adidas Next Generation Tournament Finals title.
