Hernandez Parts Ways With Wisla

Wisla Can Pack head coach Jose I. Hernandez finds it hard to beleive how his team went down in the second half
Jose Hernandez has left Wisla Can-Pack, effective immediately

Spanish play-caller Jose Hernandez has left his position at Wisla Can-Pack by mutual consent meaning he will not be at the helm for the EuroLeague Women play-off series decider against Bourges in France on Wednesday.

Despite being a potential 40 minutes away from punching their ticket for Final Eight for a second successive campaign, both parties have decided to end the relationship with immediate effect. 

Wisla have thanked Hernandez for his service to the club having held the reins for almost four seasons.

The decision comes in the wake of their disappointing 50-38 home loss to Bourges which tied the play-off series 1-1 after Wisla had won the first encounter on the road. 

It’s been a mixed season for the Krakow club who have endured a relentless injury crisis, which has ruled the influential Alana Beard and Spanish national team playmaker Cristina Ouvina out of action recently. 

The home loss to Wisla came hot on the heels of a heavy defeat to CCC Polkowice in the Polish League, although notably Hernandez has delivered considerable domestic success in the past, sweeping Polkowice last season to take the Polish Championship.

Assistant coach Artur Golanski will now take over as head coach for the remainder of the season, with fellow assistant Jordi Aragones continuing in his existing role. 

 

COUDRAY TO DEPART USO MONDEVILLE

Another EuroLeague Women head coach on the move is Herve Coudray after USO Mondeville announced he would not have his contract extended after this season.

The play-caller joined Mondeville back in 2005 and coached them since that time, aside from one season with Valenciennes.

The Frenchman took the club to within a whisker of the EuroLeague Women play-offs this season. They were edged out on the final day of the regular season having won five of their twelve games.

Coudray is also known for his previous work at the helm of the Mali national team and was crowned French Coach of the Year last May.
