The resignation of the departure of heads raises questions

It is a departure, how he fits in Andy Evers: silently, without fanfare. A dry Communiqué with the title "Speed-coach Andy Evers resigns", sent on Friday to 17.36 watch from the Swiss ski Federation, the wars.

Alpine-Director Stéphane Cattin thanked him "most sincerely for his very good work and loyalty". The Austrian is quoted: "In the last few weeks, my decision was made, I'm going to quit for personal reasons, my contract with Swiss-Ski, and thus the time for change has come." For additional information, was reached on Friday, neither Evers nor men's head coach Thomas Stauffer.

the resignation of the 51-Year-olds some questions. First of all this: which is Why it attracts the high-profile coach after only two years as a depart-in-chief of the Swiss way? That his decision "in the last few weeks, aged it," suggests, at least, that there are deep-seated reasons for this.

critique and escape

could Not cope with all in the team, with Evers' a quiet type. Carlo Janka complained during the world Cup in Are, publicly, about the lack of communication and atmosphere in the team. The criticism was aimed directly at Evers. Janka said this in such a way and to a large occasion, brought him to the notice of the Association – but also to ensure that the Problem was acute.

Also Beat Feuz, of the Croesus, the driver, took his time, until he with the man was doing who was followed in the spring of 2017 on Sepp Brunner. Brunner was more than a decade, a person close to the Emmentaler and immediately after the season's final released been accompanied by many abuses tones. After the first summer preparation with his successor Feuz said: "Andy is a very Quiet. To get to know each other, is a process. It took its time, until we have found and we knew how he ticks."

And Patrick Küng, another veteran, who resigned before the world Cup, had taken after the season 2017/18't run away and came to the young Team of coach Simon Roth Buhler. The Glarner said: "I had the feeling that the mood in the Team was not always the top. This was also something with Evers: Communicative, the Austrians are not so much the professionals. He is a very good Trainer, undisputed, only the Living was sometimes lacking."

The performance of Evers is impressive. He was the private trainer of Hermann Maier, coached Bode Miller and Tina Weirather. He is a professional that has no equal in the ski circus. For the Swiss downhill team, this was clearly not enough. His successor will have to bring the ability to ignite the fire in the team. (
