Hsu Chih-chao named KKL new head coach

coach4Former Dacin Tigers assistant coach Hsu Chih-chao has been named head coach of the Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor, the team announced.

Hsu, 37, spent his entire career as a player or a coach in Dacin.

The young coach said that he will make KKL a "balanced" team on both ends of the court. KKL averaged 82.6 points per game last season but also surrender 88.6 points per game, highest among seven SBL teams.

The announcement, however, contradicts a previous report saying that Huang Bao-tse will be the team's new head coach next year. A local media reported that Huang was hired as an assistant rather a head coach.
