Lotte “No decision has been made on the new head coach… the appointment is planned within this month”


 Lotte Giants said, “No decision has been made” regarding reports regarding the appointment of coach Kim Tae-hyung.

A Lotte official said in a phone call with Newsis on the 16th, “No decision has been made regarding a new manager. However, we plan to finalize the appointment process within this month.”

On this day, a media outlet reported that coach Kim Tae-hyung was appointed as the new head coach of Lotte.

Former coach Larry Sutton, who had been in charge of Lotte since the middle of the 2021 season, stepped down from the baton due to health issues last August. Afterwards, the remainder of the season was played under acting coach Lee Jong-un, who led the Futures (second team) team.

At the end of the season, the team’s decision to be eliminated from fall baseball was confirmed, giving strength to the team’s new plan.

A Lotte official emphasized that “CEO Lee Kang-hoon has never met Coach Kim,” but did not deny that Coach Kim could be among the candidates for the new head coach.

Coach Kim is a leader who built a ‘dynasty’ by leading the Doosan Bears to advance to the Korean Series for seven consecutive years from 2015 to 2021. He stepped down from his position as coach at the end of last season and has been on the field as a commentator this year.토토사이트

Lotte has been disappointed in the postseason for six consecutive years since 2017, when it finished third in the fall baseball season. This year, it took first place in the first month of its opening and caused a sensation, but its momentum quickly waned and it ended up in 7th place.
