The Hanwha Eagles sacked manager Carlos Subero.

The terms of the contract are three years, a total of KRW 1.4 billion (down payment of KRW 200 million, annual salary of KRW 300 million, option KRW 300 million). Coach Subero, who signed a three-year contract from the 2021 season and led the team for the past two years, left his term until the end of this year and packed his bags in the middle. Until the match against Samsung on the 11th, he left a record of 106 wins, 15 draws and 198 losses.

In May, they recovered to 5 wins and 2 losses, including 3 consecutive wins and a consecutive winning series, but concerns continued over the direction of the team. Hanwha changed its direction to the first year of the win-now season by recruiting free agents Chae Eun-seong, Lee Tae-yang and Oh Seon-jin last winter and retaining Jang Si-hwan.
However, the team did not deviate much from its original appearance. Hanwha, who threw their hopes at first place in the demonstration game, started with three consecutive losses in the season and hovered at the bottom.

Hanwha made a quick decision 41 days after the opening, judging that there would be no hope of rebounding if it was too late and missed the timing.
After reporting the resignation of manager Subero and the appointment of manager Choi Won-ho to the group, and receiving final approval, Hanwha moved swiftly. After notifying head coach Subero of the termination of the contract, he called head coach Choi Won-ho to Daejeon after finishing the Futures League match in Seosan that afternoon, and general manager Son Hyuk held a meeting at 4 p.m. and announced the appointment of a new head coach. Privately, team leader Son Hyuk and new coach Choi Won-ho, who are siblings and best friends of the same age, are expected to lead the team consistently with a strong consensus on the direction of the team in the future.
New head coach Choi Won-ho took over as head coach of Hanwha Eagles Futures in November 2019. From June 2020, he led the first team as an acting manager and returned to the Futures command tower from 2021. By reorganizing the Futures training system, they won the Northern League in the 2022 season and achieved the highest ever 14 consecutive wins in the Futures League. The Hanwha Eagles highly appreciated the fact that they have been in the club for the 4th season and have a detailed understanding of the team, the leadership that brought out the potential of young players, and the team management that puts players in the right places with a focus on winning baseball that the Futures team showed. After evaluation, it was decided to appoint director Choi Won-ho.
New head coach Choi Won-ho said in his inauguration statement, “I am not in a hurry to take on an important role during the season, but I will work hard to build a team with good coaching staff and players.”
“Coach Subero gave many players a variety of experiences. I think we should play baseball together with the coaching staff so that the players’ experiences can settle into the team well,” he said. “I feel a great sense of responsibility. With the help of the coaching staff so that the Hanwha Eagles can grow together with the players, I will do my best in the given circumstances to repay the support of the fans.”
Regarding the team’s direction for this season, coach Choi said, “First of all, it seems necessary to establish a fixed lineup and pitcher position to some extent.” I will,” he said.
Meanwhile, coach Choi Won-ho debuted in the KBO League at Hyundai Unicorns in 1996 and retired from active duty in 2009 after passing through the LG Twins. Since then, he has accumulated extensive experience such as LG pitching coach, commentator, and technical committee member of the national team.
