Professional basketball Wonju DB head coach Lee Sang-beom laid down the baton. Due to health and lack of grades, I ended the company with DB that I had been with for the past 6 years.
DB announced on the 5th that “Director Lee Sang-beom announced his resignation on the 31st of last month and accepted it.” He cited poor performance and health reasons as the reason for his resignation. Regarding this, the club said, “Coach Lee has expressed his apologies for not being able to live up to the expectations of the fans and the club.”
In April 2017, coach Lee rose to the DB command tower as the successor to former coach Kim Young-man. He showed outstanding leadership by leading DB, which was said to stay in the lower ranks, winning the regular league championship and being selected as the manager of the year. It was Ok’s fault that he was unfortunately defeated by Seoul SK in the championship match and failed to win the championship title.
In the 2019-20 season, DB tied for first place with SK (28 wins and 15 losses) until just before the regular league ended early due to the Corona 19 pandemic, and coach Lee became the winner of the Director Award again in two years.
However, after that, the team struggled, unable to get out of the bottom of the rankings. Following 9th place in the 2020-21 season and 8th place in the 2021-22 season, this season, after playing 29 games, it has only 11 wins (18 losses) and remains in 9th place. They are being chased by the lowest ranked Seoul Samsung (10-18) by half a game, and they are in a situation where they have to worry about falling to the bottom.
With head coach Seong-cheol Kim resigning along with coach Lee, DB decided to start the season by appointing coach Joo-seong Kim as acting manager from the game against Hyundai Mobis in Ulsan on the 7th. 토토사이트
Coach Kim, who debuted on the professional stage in the 2002-03 season, is a one-club man who has worked only with DB for 16 consecutive seasons. During his active career, he led the regular league championship five times and the championship game championship three times, and also won the regular league and playoff MVP twice each.
Since his retirement in 2018, he has been training for American leaders and has been a coach at DB since 2019, building his career as a leader. An official from the DB club said, “The manager and head coach are away at once, but we hope that coach Kim Joo-seong and players who have been with DB for a long time will work together to overcome the crisis.”
