Hungary's basketball federation has decided to make a change with the women's national team and appointed Norbert Székely coach on a three-year deal.
Székely, who coaches many of the Hungary players at MKB Euroleasing Sopron, has replaced László Rátgéber at the helm.
Rátgéber most recently worked with the national side at the EuroBasket Women in Latvia but the team lost its three games to Greece, Latvia and Poland.
Székely has received a lot of praise for the work he has done at Sopron the past couple of years, leading the team on an unexpected run to the EuroLeague Women Final Four in Salamanca earlier this year.
Rátgéber was at that event as the coach of Spartak Moscow Region and steered the Russian team to the title.
The decision to put Székely in charge of Hungary was made on Thursday night.
