Brose Bamberg hires Roel Moors as new head coach. The 40-year-old Belgian comes from the reigning Belgian cup winner Giants Antwerp and has signed a two-year contract with the nine-time German champion.
Leo De Rycke: “Brose Bamberg wants to reposition itself. This applies not only to the Bundesliga team but also to the development and integration of young players. For this medium-term project, we were looking for a coach who fits this profile. After we had several candidates on site in Bamberg, the supervisory board, management and I decided in favour of Roel Moors. He proved in Antwerp that he can form and develop a team. He is a hard worker who lives for basketball. We all believe he is the right man in the right place to achieve our goals in BBL and BCL.”
Roel Moors: “It's a great opportunity for me to work in a top organization in a top league. Most of all, I look forward to the atmosphere in the BROSE ARENA. I had to experience it as a guest coach and can hardly wait to enjoy it on the other side. The next days and weeks will be about putting together a roster that is competitive. My playing style is a combination of intense defense and an offense that plays very team-oriented basketball. I want to see a lot of ball movement, everyone can and should score, but always see the better positioned team-mate."
Roel Moors played as point guard for various teams in Belgium and France during his active time, became champion three times, won the trophy once and received the Player of the Year award four times. He has also played over 100 games for the Belgian national team, including matches at the 2011 and 2013 European Championships. His last stop as an active player was with the Giants Antwerp, for whom he played from 2009 to 2015. On 8 October 2015, his jersey was retired. Since then the number 4 in Antwerp has no longer been awarded. After his active career, he first became an assistant coach for the Giants before being promoted to head coach in November 2015 after Paul Varvaeck's dismissal. One year later, he won his first title as coach with the Belgian Supercup. Last season he won the Belgium Cup, and he and his team also took third place in the Basketball Champions League, which also named him coach of the year.Alle Nachrichten
