His new task, which he sees as a rough challenge, approaches the 48-year-old but rather hemdsarmelig. "My goal is to push the team to its limits". We will play intensively, with fun and spirit," promised menz and announced: "defensively, we want to be one of the best teams in europe."
Menz receives an open-ended contract with the german basketball federation, where he was previously responsible for the A2 and U20 team. He achieved an outstanding fifth place with the junior team at the european championships in spain last year, and most recently he has already acted as assistant coach of the national team under pesic. "He has done an excellent job of building up the association. Our ideas are on a roll. Frank is a bit stricter than pesic and very well positioned professionally," is how DBB president ingo weiss described the new head coach.
