Norrort Basket’s Men’s Team Gets a New Head Coach.
We are thrilled to announce that Pablo Lopez Rodriguez will be taking on the role of head coach for Norrort Basket’s men’s team. Pablo has already made tremendous contributions to our Division 2, U19, and U17 teams this season that we want to acknowledge and appreciate.
Pablo’s passion for basketball started when he was just 16 years old and began coaching for Marin Peixegalego in Spain. He has since developed his skills and gained experience with CB Morell and Eskilstuna Basket before joining Norrort as a coach for the Division 2, U19, and U17 teams last season. ”I feel incredibly honored to have this opportunity to be the new head coach for Norrort Basket’s first team,” says Pablo. ”I want to thank the board, the players, and especially Henrik Johansson, my predecessor, for their confidence and support since my arrival.”
Henrik Johansson former head coach adds, ”I quickly noticed Pablo’s expertise and brought him on as the assistant coach for our men’s team last season. He has a deep understanding of basketball and an incredible talent for motivating players. I have no doubt that he will be successful as the new head coach, and I wish him all the best!”
Pablo reflects on his experience working with the younger players last season, saying, ”It was amazing to see how much they improved throughout the season, and I was proud of their growth on and off the court. As the head coach for the first team, I have confidence in our abilities to compete and develop further. We have experienced players, as well as talented young players who will have the chance to grow and contribute to the team. I am excited to work towards building a strong identity for Norrort Basket and creating a legacy for years to come.”
Norrortrådets Karl Gotthard expresses their satisfaction and confidence in Pablo’s abilities, saying, ”We are thrilled with Pablo’s work with our youth teams this season and are convinced that he is ready to lead our men’s team in the Superettan Herr league. Everyone involved has complete faith in his basketball knowledge and ambition, and we are happy to welcome him as our young, ambitious coach for this important role within the organization.”
