There are a lot of changes in the Austrian Hockey Federation going on. After Nitan Sondhi, former assistant coach, took over the position as head coach of the Austrian women’s national team from Marcin Nyckowiak in May, the Austrian Hockey Federation and Frank Hänel, former head coach of the Austrian men’s squad, are separating as well. Now the Austrians are searching for a new head coach that can continue the glorious work of Frank Hänel. You’ll find more information about the job under „Get and Give“.
