Stelian Moculescu named new BR Volleys head coach
News from the clubs

Berlin, Germany, February 13, 2018. The BERLIN Recycling Volleys reacted to their rollercoaster ride this year by dismissing head coach Luke Reynolds with immediate effect. For the remainder of the season Stelian Moculescu will take over the reins of the team from the German capital. He attended the first training session on Monday afternoon and will take his place on the bench for the CEV Champions League matchup against the defending champions Zenit KAZAN this Wednesday.
Having already lost 8 out of 21 matches, the current BR Volleys season strays far from satisfaction. Additionally, no positive progress has been clearly recognisable, so that the club management saw themselves forced to act. “We have not shown any consistency so far this season. Add this to the mediocre results, there was no improvement in the game philosophy, although we had realised and discussed the fundamental problems. Unfortunately, the coach was not able to give the much-needed impulse,” Kaweh Niroomand explains. “It has been a brave decision to give a young coach like Luke Reynolds a chance to prove himself. Without any doubt – he gave his best. However, to retain our season’s goals in the national championship and the CEV Champions League, we had to make a move. Wholeheartedly we wish Luke all the best and we are convinced that he will make his way as a Volleyball coach.”
His successor, Stelian Moculescu, is a well-known, successful and experienced coach that declined several offers in the past one and a half years after his farewell from VfB FRIEDRICHSHAFEN. Remembering the special atmosphere in Berlin, “Stelu” is looking forward to his new challenge.

Niroomand stresses that Moculescu possesses an incredible resume, Volleyball knowledge and authority, which makes him the perfect fit as the new BR Volleys head coach. The Romanian-born Moculescu should be familiar to every German and European Volleyball fan, since he was at the helm of the “Häfler” from 1997 to 2016, claiming 18 National Championships, 19 National Cup titles and even winning the CEV Champions League in 2007. Until last, he served as the head coach of the Austrian Beach Volleyball national team.
