Happee appoint Tero Kotilainen as new head coach

Tero Kotilainen will follow Mikko Lehto as Happee Jyväskylä’s head coach. The 44-year old has been a member of the team’s coaching staff since 2016.

“It is is an honour to continue with Mikko Lehto’s fine work”, Tero Kotilainen says. “I have learned a lot working with him for the last two years. Now it is time to start taking the team towards a new era and I feel I have a lot to give to the team and the club as a head coach. It is essential to see players realise their own mental resources and use them for the team. I also want to see players’ genuine ambition and passion for the game out there.”

Tero Kotilainen’s further coaching staff consists of Olli Honka (from LNM), goalie coach Ville Puro and physical training coach Josh Vandeweerd.
