On the 2nd of last month, due to an incomprehensible reason, director Kwon Sun-chan of Heungkuk Life Insurance was sacked. New manager Shin Yong-joon immediately took over as manager Kim Yeo-il, who left the team together, but the manager position is still vacant.
Head coach Lee Young-soo took over as acting coach after manager Kwon Sun-chan was fired, but resigned after playing only one game. Head coach Lee Young-soo said, “I learned a lot from coach Kwon Soon-chan. I think his decision to leave the team was right for the coach’s sake,” and withdrew. Since then, coach Kim Dae-gyeong has been leading the team as an ‘acting manager’. 먹튀검증
Currently, Heungkuk Life Insurance has only two assistant coaches: Kim Dae-gyeong (36) and Choi Ji-wan (31). If even acting manager Kim Dae-kyung leaves the team, there will be no staff left to play volleyball. Acting manager Kim Dae-gyeong, who remained for the players, became the busiest person at Heungkuk Life Insurance overnight. On game days, he goes onto the court with the ball after finishing a power analysis meeting and interview. And he hits and lifts the ball himself, helping players with attacking, receiving, and toss training.
The coach of the opposing team on the opposite court watches the players training, checks their condition, and concentrates on planning the game together with the coach, but acting coach Kim Dae-kyung is doing all of this alone. He is 36 years old, one year older than Kim Yeon-kyung, and is a coach in his 30s who first joined Heungkuk Life Insurance this season. Coach Choi Ji-wan, who remains with him, is also a 31-year-old coach and a first-year coach.
Acting head coach Kim Dae-gyeong has no experience directing a team from the bench. However, he also had a ridiculous experience attending the All-Star game as a manager in the situation of acting manager’s acting manager.
Meanwhile, recruiting a new manager for Heungkuk Life Insurance is not as easy as expected. After coach Kwon Soon-chan was sacked, Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Hae-ran directly contradicted the explanation of the new general manager Shin Yong-jun, revealing the club’s upper-level intervention in game management. Heungkuk Life Insurance, which brought itself into crisis due to the controversy over the manager’s hardship, eventually bowed its head by announcing an apology.
The trust of volleyball players toward Heungkuk Life Insurance collapsed to such an extent that even Kim Ki-joong, the coach of Sunseon Girls’ High School, who was tentatively appointed as the new coach, felt the burden and refused the coaching job. It is significant that even coach Kim Ki-joong, who has worked as a head coach at Heungkuk Life Insurance for four years since 2018 and knows Heungkuk Life Insurance better than anyone else, has declined.
Due to the club’s unreasonable behavior, acting coach Kim Dae-gyeong has been doing everything alone on the court for over a month, from hitting the ball directly to power analysis meetings and interviews.
