NT Coaching Staff Completed

Luckipar head coach Jack Mai joined NT coaching staff as assistant coach and filled out last of the three assistant spots.

2001 Taiwan NT coaching staff will be Head coach Chien Yi-fei, Top Assistant Tien Shi-ho, Assistant coach Jack Mai and Lee Yun-kwang. Jack Mai will be in charge of team offense and Lee will focus on defense.

One interesting scene is, these four NT coaches are not doing particularly well in the A-League preliminaries. Chien's Yulon and Tien's Bank of Taiwan is both 2-3, Jack Mai's Luckipar is 1-4, all out of the top four in the standings. Lee's Rambo Jack team failed to advance to the preliminaries.

If these four teams led by NT coaches keep playing like this and no one finishes in the top three in the end, I believe there will be a ton of criticism on the makeup of the NT coaching staff in the future. Let's just wait and see.
