Even though Mr. Amsalem wasn't ready to accept Asher's quit, it turns out that the team didn't take long to find a replacement, and tonight they presented their new head coach, Ofer Berkovic.

Berkovic coached Haifa BC in the last season. He was supposed to stay in the team, but left in the summer due to financial problems.
