Korean volleyball, which won no medals in both the men’s and women’s divisions for the first time in its history of participating in the Asian Games, decided to change its head coach.
The Korea Volleyball Association announced on the 8th, “We have decided not to renew the contract with Lim Do-heon, the men’s national team coach, whose term ended at the Hangzhou Asian Games.”
He added, “We also mutually agreed to terminate the contract with the women’s national team coach Cesar Hernández Gonzalez.”
In addition, the association said, “The chairman of the men’s and women’s performance improvement committee also took responsibility for the poor performance and expressed his gratitude.”
Currently, the head of the men’s performance improvement committee is Choi Cheon-sik, coach of Inha University, and the head of the women’s performance improvement committee is Kim Cheol-yong, head coach of JoongAng Girls’ Middle and High School.
The association said, “We will establish and implement a mid- to long-term development plan so that Korean volleyball can go through growing pains and be reborn through radical reform.” 스포츠토토
