At short notice, SC Bern announced this morning to hold a press conference today at 1 pm following last night's 3-6 loss to HC Lugano. Long story short: SCB and their coach Guy Boucher part ways with immediate effect.

Only one week after SC Bern and Guy Boucher announced that they won't extend their contract after the current season and three defeats in a row later, SC Bern has enough. They have fired Guy Boucher. In his stead, assistant coach Lars Leuenberger will take over. New assistant coach is Elite-A coach Marco Bayer.

As a consequence of Lars Leuenberger's promotion to the head coaching position, his brother Sven has decided to step down as team manager. He will remain with SCB, however, and switches jobs with Alex Châtelain, who will be SCB's team manager from now on. Sven Leuenberger, for his part, will take over as CEO of SCB Future. (tme)
