Asseco Resovia has announced in its official website that is has extended the contract of coach Andrzej Kowal through the end of the 2020 season.
Kowal has been with Resovia for almost 15 years now. From 2004, when he retired as a player, to 2007, he served the team as an assistant coach. He took team’s main head coaching position for the first time in 2007, but only for a brief period of time, going back to the assistant’s chair again until 2011. He then took the full time position of head coach for good in 2011, a job he held until 2017. In that six years span, Kowal led Resovia to three PlusLiga titles (2012, 2013, 2015) and a Polish Supercup (2013). He also led the team to a silver medal finish at the 2015 CEV Champions League.
At the end of 2017, he was replaced by Italian Roberto Serniotti, but the team quickly regretted its decision, and just a few months later Kowal was back at the helm again. Not one to risk the same mistake, Resovia’s management went ahead and decided to lock the champion coach for good for quite some time now.
Asseco Resovia currently sits in 4th place of Plusliga’s standings with a 14-7 record.
“Coach Andrzej Kowal for the next two seasons will lead our team!”
