Weiz – Monday, March 14, 2022, 9:02 p.m

With Jörg Schirgi, SC Weiz is introducing an interesting man as the new head coach.

The 34-year-old from Graz is one of the 21 participants in the 2022/23 UEFA Pro Diploma course and is therefore considered the country’s great hope for a coach. That’s why Schirgi is presented as “a coach with a lot of potential” in the eighth-placed Regionalliga Mitte team.

After two defeats against Gleisdorf (0:2) and Sturm Graz Amateure (0:6), Weizer are releasing 34-year-old Christoph Monschein, who has been head coach since the summer of 2021. After 18 games, SC Weiz is in eighth place in the table and has just one place left in the ÖFB Cup.

The best four Styrian teams qualify for this – with the exception of the Sturm amateurs. However, with Allerheiligen, St. Anna/Aigen, Gleisdorf and Kalsdorf, four direct competitors are within reach.

Weiz gets a “modern and dedicated coach”

Schirgi also has a lot in common with the latter, as the pro license participant coached the club from near Graz until September 2021. In the first round of the ÖFB Cup, the Styrian threw SCR Altach out of the competition before having to retire after a moderate start to the regional league season and the 8-0 loss in the second round of the cup in Salzburg.

From SC Weiz’s point of view, there was still a lot to be said for Schrigi, as sporting director Sandro Derler explains: “He is a modern and committed coach and uses videos to analyze the games in detail. It is also not for nothing that he was awarded the highest course by the ÖFB Austria’s coaching license has been accepted.”

Addendum: “We are pleased that he wants to take the next step in his career with us in Weiz. We are convinced that he is the right man for the coaching position here.”

After the Weizers have no games next weekend, Schirgi’s debut will not take place until March 25th against Union Gurten.
