Head coaching change in Hamburg Towers, with Korner’s assistant Barloschky taking over

By Eurohoops team/

Veolia Towers Hamburg announced on Sunday that it has dismissed Raoul Korner as head coach with immediate effect and replaced him with assistant coach Benka Barloschky.

The move came after a 15-point home defeat against ratiopharm Ulm in the German League. This was Korner’s first season with the club, and he had led it to a 3-6 record in the EuroCup and a 6-8 record in the German League.

Barloschky, 35, first joined Hamburg in 2018 as an assistant and has served as interim head coach, including twice earlier this season when Korner was ill.

Less the defeat itself, but the way the team presented itself made it clear that we have to act now. We’ve come to the conclusion that Raoul can no longer reach the team in the way that would be necessary for our current situation. We urgently need a new impulse on the sidelines,” Hamburg’s Director of Sports, Marvin Willoughby, said in a statement released by the club.
