The Korea Basketball Association (hereinafter referred to as the association) has received applications for coaching the Korean men’s and women’s 3×3 national teams since December 14 last year. A total of four people submitted applications by the deadline of January 9, including male Lee Sang-yoon, female Jeon Byung-joon, Han Tae-hee and Jeong Han-shin.라바카지노도메인

First of all, SPOTV commentator Lee Sang-yoon is known to have exclusively provided support for the men’s 3×3 national team. Commentator Lee Sang-yoon led the team to the semifinals by serving as the acting coach of Korea Tender, who had financial difficulties during the 2002-2003 season. Since then, he has served as the coach of SK and Kumho Life Insurance. He led Kumho Life Insurance, which had been the lowest ranking for two consecutive seasons, to the playoffs in all three seasons in his tenure. He also put Sangmyung University, which had been an underdog, in the playoffs for the first time since the launch of the College League. Since then, he has gained experience as a commentator and coach for Bae Jae-jae.

Lee Seung-joon, who was the first former 3×3 player to draw attention by expressing his intention to apply for the men’s 3×3 national team coach competition, was excluded from the interview because he failed to submit required documents within the document application period.

Unlike men, competition is fierce for the women’s 3×3 national team coach. There were concerns that the Korean women’s 3×3 team, which has a weaker base than men’s, would actually have fewer applicants, but more leaders than expected expressed their intention to join the women’s 3×3 national team.

Jeon Byung-joon, former coach of the women’s 3×3 national team, was the first to throw his hat into the ring to support the women’s 3×3 national team coach. Jeon, who joined Daegu Dongyang in 1999 after serving as a professional player at Myeongji High School and Kookmin University, served as coach of Myeongji High School and Samsung Life Insurance after retirement, and served as the coach of the women’s 3×3 national team from April 2022 to the Asian Games in Hangzhou last year.

Former coach Han Tae-hee, who served at the Industrial Bank of Korea after attending Whimoon High School and Kyung Hee University, also expressed her intention to support the coach of the women’s 3×3 national team. Han served as a coach at Kyung Hee University and the Hyundai Business Women’s Basketball Team, and has since served as the head of the basketball class and chairman of the Jungnang District Basketball Association.

Former coach Jeong Han-shin, who led the men’s 3×3 national team, is also known to have applied for a competition to become a coach. Having the title of Korea’s first 3×3 national team coach, Jeong was appointed as the head coach of the men’s 3×3 national team in April 2018, and participated in men’s basketball matches at the 2018 FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup and the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games. At the Asian Games, he coached Ahn Young-joon, Kim Nak-hyeon, Park In-tae, and Yang Hong-seok to win a silver medal. This time, however, he applied for the position of coach of the women’s 3×3 national team, not the men’s 3×3 national team.

At 10:30 a.m. on the 16th, the association will convene a performance improvement committee to conduct interviews with the subjects, and after that, a final coach will be appointed to lead the men’s and women’s 3×3 national teams through the board of directors. (*If it is determined that there is no eligible candidate among the applicants, the re-announcement process will be carried out.)

For reference, the men’s and women’s 3×3 team coaches will have a contract period of March 2025. Starting with the 2024 FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup to be held in Singapore from March 27 to 31, 2024, the team will lead the team until the 2025 FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup. The 2025 competition will also take place in Singapore in March 2025, and the contract period can be extended depending on evaluation after the competition ends.
