After a poor World Cup campaign – there are questions about Dutchman Alexander Cox’s future as head coach with Hockey Ireland.
Hockey Ireland CEO Jerome Pels has also been tight-lipped about the status of the senior men’s coach. There has been no word on whether or not Cox will be staying on for another season.
Cox took on the role as Head Coach on an interim basis last summer ahead of December’s World Cup.
Cox joined Hockey Ireland and the Green Machine with abundance of experience having previously held the roles of assistant coach with both the Dutch men’s and women’s national teams, winning gold at the 2012 London Olympics with the latter.
He has been the head coach of Kampong men’s team since 2012 and continues to remain in that role. While there, he has lead the side to the top of the Hoofdklasse for 2 years in a row, as well as winning the Eurohockey League title in 2016.
CEO Jerome Pels said that the national body are currently in the process of evaluating the World Cup campaign and the future programme.
