Incredible passion: Stewart remains coach of Adler Mannheim
The 64-year-old will continue to form the coaching team of the eight-time German champion with his assistants Marcel Goc and Jochen Hecht. After the separation of ex -coach Pavel Gross, the trio had taken over the trio in March – but initially only in the interim.
You have “showed an incredible passion and carry the club in your heart,” said manager Jan-Axel Alavaara. “As a overall package, the three bring an incredible wealth of experience and knowledge.” Her professional and positive attitude “has been transferred to the team and the few weeks until the end of the season have clearly shown the potential in the team.”
After the semi -final series against the polar bears, as an organization, we still have an unfinished task ahead of us.
Stewart had only replaced Gross shortly before the end of the main round. In the play-off semi-final, the Mannheimers failed just on the later German champion Eisbären Berlin.
“After the semi -final series against the polar bears, as an organization, we still have an unfinished task ahead of us,” said Stewart. The Canadian was already head coach from 2000 to 2004 and the Adler interim coach in 2017. In 2001 he became master with them.
