2017 our Staff is looking pretty similar as 2016.

 We have shuffled the pack little bit to make it more functional.

Head coach Ville Korhonen leaves the offense to Jesper Johanssons capable hands. Jesper has been OL coach since 2011 and Ass.HC since 2014, so it is about time to give him the keys.

"I trust Jesper 100 % and it is the first time I don´t call offensive plays in our womens team history, and 2nd year I don´t coordinate both sides. Thats new, but am happy I have been able to let go some." says HC Ville.

"It is a change, but am really comfortable to do it. I can get back to defense that has always been my "baby" all thru my career."

Ville gets back to Defense side, where he will be DC and LB coach. Will Peterson is taking good care of DBs and Robert Olsson continues to coach D-line.

"We are extremely experienced in defensive side. Def.staff, we can have really open and honest conversation, and we are able to be a strong group of coaches, agree and disagree of issues, to find a best way for us. And strenght of D-staff hopefully will stick to our defense and we can take That one step..." 


Offensive staff is youthful and energetic. There is a breath of fresh air now.

Jesper is still taking care of O-line and coordinates offense. Mattias Grip works with WRs, and that groups as whole, is the top group in  the country. 

 Jimmy Alonso does great job with our young RB group. With one extremely experienced player and group of 2nd year players, we look solid there.

New addition is QB coach Erik Smiding. His background is from Handball and Javelin, but via personal contact, he ended up as football coach. Erik is very sharp, good communicator and extremely methodical. What he does not know,he finds out about it.

And last and not absolutely the least, is our Team Manager Elisabeth Olsson. Without her work behind the team, we would have some huge headaches.

Last 2 years she has done amazing job to get our economy in great shape, organized games, home and away trips. We just will keep her happy in future, so the life is simpler.
