Coach Kim, who went through Donga High School and Chung-Ang University, joined Wonju TG Sambo (now DB) with the first overall pick in the 2002 KBL rookie draft. He wore only one uniform until the end of his active career in 2018.
Including winning the championship game in his debut season, he won the regular league five times and the championship game three times in 16 seasons. He is a club legend, including being selected as the regular league and playoff MVP twice each.
Manager Kim returned to DB as a coach in 2019. Since January of this year, he has been in charge of the team as an acting manager when coach Lee Sang-beom resigned due to poor performance and health problems. This season, DB finished 7th out of 10 teams with a record of 22 wins and 32 losses.
DB said of coach Kim, “The person who knows the team best,” and “through smooth communication with the players, we judged that he was the right person to lead the rapid stabilization and the club’s new leap forward.”
In addition, he added, “As much as I experienced winning as a ‘one team’ as a player, I expect that as his leader, he will create the same team and lead it to the top.”
Manager Kim, who has risen to the official command tower, said, “I am honored and thrilled to retire from the team I joined as a player and become a coach and then a manager,” and “I am grateful to the club for trusting me.” He said, “I know exactly what the club and the fans want,” and expressed his ambition, saying, “I will put the team to the top as soon as possible with good players.”
