Ligue Féminine de Basketball
Emmanuel Coeuret goes, Bruno Blier comes
Emmanuel Coeuret, remplacé par Bruno Blier

With just two wins in the Ligue Féminine de Basketball this season Aix-en-Provence are once again at the wrong end of the table.

Veuillez trouver en bas du page des informations en français sur le PAB 13 et le départ de Emmanuel Cœuret.

Emmanuel Coeuret who replaced Erik Lehmann at the start of the 2009-10 season has had two difficult seasons as head coach of Aix-en-Provence with more losses than wins.

The club was expecting to challenge for a place in the top half of the table this season with the recruitment of talented international basketball players.

However after five consecutive defeats including three home games, the president of the club, Guy Boillon, had a meeting with Coeuret on Tuesday, 16 November 2011.

After the one on one the president said Coeuret and himself had agreed to end his contract and that Bruno Blier would take over the reigns immediately.

In reality the encounter between the two men was about the financial aspect of terminating Coeuret's contract and finding a common solution that would be beneficial for both parties.

Emmanuel Coeuret ©  womensbasketball-in-france.com Coeuret, recently married, started his coaching career in 1995 with ASPTT Caen. In 1998 he moved to USP Mondeville and ran the basketball academy as well as taking up the role of the assistant coach.

He left USO Mondeville in 2007 and in 2008 took up his first LFB coaching job with Clermont-Ferrand. Due to the financial problems he left the club at the end of the season and soon after became coach of Aix-en-Provence.

La décision du PAB13

Dans le communiqué du club Aix-en-Provence le Président Guy Boillon déclare:

"D'un commun accord, le PAB13 et Emmanuel Cœuret ont décidé de mettre fin à leur collaboration.

Bruno Blier (ex-entraineur d'Arras) sera le nouveau coach."

Le contrat de Emmanuel Cœuret en tant qu’entraineur auprès du PAB13 prend fin après deux saisons et quelques matchs en 2011-12.

Cœuret, ex-entraineur du défunt club Clermont-Ferrand, avait remplacé Erik Lehman en début de la saison 209-2010. Mais après deux saisons difficiles et trop de défaites dans la saison actuelle, voir 6 défaites sur 8 matchs, dont 4 à domicile avec une équipe pleine de joueuses prometteuses de niveau international et sur la 11ème place dans le classement, le président s'est mis d'accord avec son entraineur de terminer le contrat.

Le remplacement sera Bruno Blier qui était 16 ans auprès du club nordiste, Arras et finaliste de l’Euro Coupe en 2010-11.

Blier a pour tâche de remettre l'équipe sur la route de victoire et le maintien du club en LFB.

Son premier match avec Aix-en-Provence sera contre Bourges, suivi une semaine après contre Arras.
