Coach Jeon Chang-jin will take the helm of KCC for one more year.

KCC head coach Choi Hyung-gil said on the 9th, “Coach Jeon Chang-jin had a lot of worries. As the saying goes, ‘Leave when they applaud,’ and he was actually thinking of quitting after this season. However, I convinced him with difficulty.” ‘The former coach, who led KCC to the championship, will take the helm for another year.’

When I asked him, “Are you sure you want to stay for one more year?” he said, “Yes.

The former coach’s contract with KCC runs until the summer of 2025.

There were many twists and turns. During the regular season and playoffs, Jeon said several times, “I think this season will be my last. I’m going to do my best to win the championship and then step down.”

There was a reason. KCC had a lot of problems in the regular season. 메이저사이트 With the addition of Song Kyo-chang and Choi Jun-yong to the existing Huh Ung Ragan and Lee Seung-hyun, the nickname “Super Team” came naturally.

However, the team did not perform well in the early stages of the regular season. Heo Woong did his part, but Lee Seung-hyun had injury lingering effects, and Lagunar was ‘aging’. Choi Jun-yong and Song Kyo-chang were in and out of the lineup with nagging injuries.

KCC didn’t have the expected performance.

They had a lot of players with a lot of personality. New foreign player Alize Johnson had the misfortune of ‘refusing to play’.

The former coach felt responsible. In addition, the team’s poor performance was met with “double jeers” from the stands, and KCC fans even organized a retirement truck protest.

“We didn’t do well in the regular season,” he said after the team qualified for the playoffs. It’s natural for us to be criticized by our home fans. I heard ‘XXX’ in the stands, and there were truck protests. I was shocked. It was all because I wasn’t good enough. I didn’t want to get old and be criticized. I thought, ‘I have to let go of the baton,’” he said. That’s why the former coach said on several occasions that ‘this season is my last’.

However, there was a powerful turnaround. In the playoffs, the cohesion and organization of the KCC players came to life perfectly. The former coach coined the phrase ‘super rotation’. He minimized his reliance on his starters. He didn’t play players for more than 30 minutes. Instead, he emphasized offensive and defensive transitions. In the process, Huh Ung Ragan, Song Kyo-chang, and Choi Jun-yong played to their strengths. In the end, KCC’s combination of talent and organization paid off dramatically, and the result was a sweet victory. Playoff sixth-seeded SK, fourth-seeded DB, and champion KT were all no match for them. On their way to the 10 wins they needed to win the title, they only allowed two losses. It was dominant. For the first time in the history of professional basketball, the fifth-place team in the regular season became the champions.

As KCC’s performance changed, the fans rewarded Jeon with coffee tea.

There was also a witty three-line apology in his name: ‘I’m sorry for the words we said (before), brother (Chang) Jin,’ it read.

Moreover, in the third and fourth games of the championship, KCC’s new home, Busan Sajiksil Indoor Gymnasium, drew more than 10,000 spectators in a row. 카지노사이트 The former coach’s introduction was met with thunderous cheers.

After winning the championship, he said, “I have experienced many championships, but I have never seen fan cheers like this. I think the fans in Busan are amazing. I’m proud that there is not only baseball in Busan, but also basketball.” In the end, the drama of KCC’s playoff comeback and the support of the fans changed the former coach’s mind. Next season, KCC’s “super rotation” will continue.
