media report: out for national coach kolliker

Not as a trainer and not as a sports director, as had already been speculated. A successor to the swiss, who took office on 1. According to the report, the man who took over in june 2011 has not yet been found. On monday the federation wants to make a declaration. Officially, the separation was not confirmed by the DEB or even by kolliker himself on sunday at first.

According to information from "eishockey news", the german ice hockey federation and the german ice hockey league (DEL) want to regulate all relevant matters concerning the national team with a new management team. The plan is to provide: first, a new sports director will be sought. Once the new coach is found, phase two follows with the appointment of a new national coach.

Since the departure of success coach uwe krupp in 2011 to the kolner sharks, ralph krueger has long been considered the preferred candidate. And a few weeks ago, an engagement of the ex-national player still seemed possible. Last wednesday, however, krueger made the promotion at the edmonton oilers from assistant to the first german head coach in the north american professional league NHL perfect.

The personnel situation at the DEB, on the other hand, was anything but perfect. Two years after krupp had led the german team to fourth place at the world championships at home and thus to the best result in 57 years, kolliker failed miserably and all along the line: twelfth place at the world championships in sweden and finland, no olympic ticket for the time being, but plenty of failures – above all the two disgraces against norway (4:12) and the czech republic (1:8).

After that, a team of experts from the DEB – vice president erich kuhnhackl and michael bresagk – and the DEL – club managers peter john lee and charly fliegauf – looked at the national coach and apparently gave him a bad report card. So bad that president uwe harnos will now part company with kolliker despite earlier vows of loyalty.
