Roel Moors appointed new Head Coach at Brose Bamberg

Bamberg, 06-20-2019

Brose Bamberg has engaged Roel Moors as its new Head Coach. The 40-year-old Belgian is leaving the reigning Belgian cup winners Giants Antwerp and has signed a two-year contract with the nine-times German champions.

Leo De Rycke commented: “Brose Bamberg aims to reorganize itself. That goes not only for the German league team, but in particular for the development and integration of young players. We sought a coach who meets that profile for this medium-term project. Although we had a number of candidates here in Bamberg, the Supervisory Board, management and I decided in favor of Roel Moors. He has proved in Antwerp that he can form and develop a team. He’s a worker who lives for basketball. All of us believe he’s the right man in the right place to help us achieve our objectives in the German league and BCL.”

Roel Moors said: “It’s a great opportunity for me to work in a top organization in a top league. I’m most looking forward to the atmosphere in the BROSE ARENA. I had to experience it as a visiting coach and now can hardly wait to enjoy it from the other side. The aim in the coming days and weeks is to assemble a competitive squad. My style of play is a combination of intensive defending and an offense that is geared very much toward team play. I want to see us move the ball a lot. Anyone can and should score, but always look out for a better positioned teammate.”

In his time as a player, Roel Moors was point guard for various teams in Belgium and France, won the championship title three times, captured the cup once and was named Player of the Year on four occasions. He also played more than 100 internationals for Belgium, including at the 2011 and 2013 European Championships. His last season as an active player was with Giants Antwerp, for whom he appeared from 2009 to 2015. His jersey was raised below the arena’s roof on October 8, 2015. Since then, the number 4 has not been awarded to anyone in Antwerp. After ending his active career, he first became assistant coach with the Giants, before being promoted to Head Coach in November 2015 after Paul Varvaeck was sacked. A year later he won his first title as coach, the Belgian Basketball Supercup. He won the cup with Antwerp last season and also finished third with his team in the Basketball Champions League, in which he was also named as Coach of the Year.
