The new coaches

Kim Hee-ho: Kim Hee-ho was a part of Martin Rennie's staff with Seoul E-Land last season. He will take up a similar role with Choi Young-joon's Busan. Prior to working with Seoul E-Land, Kim Hee-ho was on Yoon Jung-hwan's staff with Japanese side Sagan Tosu during the surprise run from the J2 league up to the upper parts of J1.

Kim Yong-ho: Kim Yong-ho was the manager of K3 side Chuncheon FC. Kim Yong-ho will reportedly take charge of Busan's reserve side for the new reserve/U23 league. Kim Yong-ho had also served as manager of the women's U17 team.

Kim Jung-chan: Kim Jung-chan was the manager of the women's U14 team. He will serve as a scout for Busan.

Lee Chung-ho: Lee Chung-ho will be the goalkeeper coach for Busan. He had previously served as a coach for Gangwon FC.

The old coaches

Denis Iwamura: Denis will resume his old coaching role as the physical coach.

Lee Seung-yeop: Lee Seung-yeop will become a coach with the youth teams.

Park Jin-seob: Park Jin-seob will move to Pohang and work with Pohang Steelers

Valeri Sarychev: Sarychev will look elsewhere to continue his career.

Player news

Not a whole lot new/official news, but the rumors are starting to pick up steam.

The club has targeted the six national team (related) players: Lee Jeong-hyeob, Joo Se-jong, Gu Hyun-joon, Lee Chung-woong, Lee Bum-young, and Lee Chang-geun, as priorities. Keeping all of them will certainly be a trick, and is seemingly highly unlikely.
  • Forward Lee Jeong-hyeob has reportedly told team officials he's willing to stay with the team next season. 
  • Keeper Lee Bum-young has said he's willing to say, but would also be open to moving. I take that to be sports talk for 'I want out'. 
  • Fellow keeper Lee Chang-geun is also possibly on the way out with our Hyundai cousin in Ulsan reportedly close to a deal. Ulsan is in need of a new keeper with Kim Seung-gyu likely on the way to Japan. 
  • Twitter account @KORFooballNews (who is usually quite reliable) tweeted that midfielder Joo Se-jong is also set to leave the club. I'm not sure what his source is though. 
  • There has been no news regarding any interest in Lee Chung-woong or Gu Hyun-joon or any other player for that matter.
Can Busan hold onto these players? Is the 2016 season already doomed? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
