Acting coach Lee Young-soo (45), who took over the baton due to the hardship of former coach Kwon Soon-chan (48) of Heungkuk Life Insurance, women’s professional volleyball, expressed his appreciation after 3 days.
It is known that Heungkuk Life Insurance proposed to Kim Ki-joong (48), head coach of Sunseon Girls’ High School, to take over as head coach during former head coach Park Mi-hee (60)’s tenure.
Acting coach Lee Young-soo announced his resignation immediately after leading the game against GS Caltex held at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on the 5th to victory.
Acting manager Lee said, “I had the same thought since the manager left, and I told the club that I would quit today’s game for the last time.”
He, who had assisted Kwon as head coach until a few days ago, was appointed acting manager on the 2nd when former manager Kwon suddenly resigned along with former general manager Kim Yeo-il.
Acting manager Lee, who had been with former manager Kwon all his life as a player and coach, led the team to victory by correcting the chaotic team atmosphere that day, but eventually resigned.
He said, “During college, I played the game together as a freshman and the coach as a senior, and at KB Insurance, I learned how to guide players and run a team (from former coach Kwon).” “he said.
Previously, Shin Yong-jun, the new director of the new team, pointed out the background of former coach Kwon’s hardship, and also stood in the position of former coach Kwon on the issue of ‘placement of Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena Mrazenovich (registered name Yelena) in front and rear’.
Previously, Director Shin said, “Among fans, there was an opinion that it would be better to divide Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena into the front and rear rather than put them in the front line.” I know it was done,” he explained.
Acting coach Lee said, “I don’t know where 안전놀이터 (the talk of putting the front and rear positions) come from, such as the fan club or the volleyball world.” said.
He added, “Even if I stayed with him (as acting manager), it would be the same situation (I decided to resign).”
Acting manager Lee said ahead of the game that day, “On the 2nd (when the hardening was announced), the players were in an agitated situation and it was difficult to exercise.” told
Heungkuk Life Insurance was put in a situation where it had to speed up the appointment of a command tower as former coach Kwon Soon-chan was sacked after nine months and coach Lee Young-soo, who had been appointed as acting manager, resigned after one game.
The Heungkuk Life Insurance club saw Kim Ki-joong, Seonsun Girls’ High School coach, who worked as the head coach until the 2021-2022 season and was relatively familiar with the club’s internal circumstances, as the right person to deal with the current situation.
Coincidentally, coach Kim is a friend of the same age as former coach Kwon Sun-chan who played together at Sungkyunkwan University and Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance.
Coach Kim was selected as a’director candidate’ even after former manager Park Mi-hee left the team at the end of the 2021-2022 season, but Heungkuk Life Insurance chose former manager Kwon Soon-chan.
When Heungkuk Life Insurance quickly finishes appointing a manager, the new command tower will lead the team from the match against IBK Industrial Bank held at the Hwaseong Gymnasium on the 8th.
