“Maybe he can join the Australian camp…” Kia’s new coach will be compressed into final candidates and video interviews will be held during the Lunar New Year holiday?

The candidates for KIA Tigers’ new coach have finally been compressed. Depending on the specificity of the Lunar New Year holiday, there is a possibility that a video interview will take place with the coach candidate group. If a new head coach is appointed immediately after the Lunar New Year holiday, he is expected to be able to join the Australian Canberra Spring Camp immediately.라바카지노주소

Kia is in the process of appointing a new coach to fill the vacancy left by Kim Jong-kook, its former coach who terminated his contract on charges of bribery. The KIA team started its first spring camp without its head coach Jin Gap-yong. There will likely be no major problems at the first Canberra spring camp, which focuses on technical training rather than actual games. However, the coach needs to have a presence at least at the second Okinawa spring camp, where practice matches will begin.

“The first spring camp is a training program that was already created during the strategic planning seminar, and it seems that it will be possible to proceed without any major problems,” KIA general manager Shim Jae-hak said. “However, it is true that the presence of a coach is necessary in the second spring camp. I think the appointment of a coach will be carried out in consideration of that.”

Last week, Kia started to search for candidates for a new coach. After around 10 candidates were formed, Shim Jae-hak, head of the team, personnel management level, and CEO Choi Joon-young discussed and narrowed the list of candidates. And the final candidates for a coach have been narrowed down ahead of the Lunar New Year holiday.

A Kia source told MK Sports on the afternoon of February 8, “We have narrowed down the final candidates regarding the appointment of a new head coach. Now, a conclusion can be reached after going through the interview process.”

The sooner the announcement of the appointment of the head coach is made, the better. However, a big variable is the overlapping Lunar New Year holidays, Korea’s biggest holiday. There is no reason to insist on a face-to-face interview. There is a good possibility that a video interview will take place regardless of the current location of the candidate, whether he is abroad or in Korea.

One of the conditions for selecting a new Kia head coach is a leader who is capable of producing results but also moving in line with the team. No matter how good a team’s long-term plans and season manuals are, it is meaningless if the field does not properly reflect them. After all, the key is how well the team understands the manuals and how to actively communicate with the front desk while respecting each other.

Above all, there is a lot of criticism over the new head coach of KIA. With outside figures such as former coach Lee Jong-beom, former coach Kim Won-hyung, and former coach Lee Dong-wook on the rise, the possibility of internal promotion such as batting coach Lee Bum-ho cannot be ruled out.

Of course, the appointment of a coach is ultimately decided by the team leader and the parent group. The key is when to make a decision on the interview results that could take place during the holiday season. If a new coach is decided immediately after the Lunar New Year holiday, he can quickly join the Canberra Spring Camp in Australia.

“If appointment is decided right after the Lunar New Year holiday, the team will be able to take the helm at the Australian spring camp immediately,” said an official from Kia. “It would be better if the team works with the team in Canberra, Australia, and moves to the Okinawa spring camp in Japan.”

The issue of Kia’s new manager is expected to become a hot potato in the baseball world throughout the Lunar New Year holiday. Rumors may leak naturally during the interview process. Attention is focusing on who will be the head coach who will lead Kia in 2024.
