For the past four years, Oliver David has been head coach of the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the United States Hockey League (USHL), the most important junior league in the USA. In the 2019-20 season, the now 42-year-old was named the USHL's Coach of the Year.
In Biel, Oliver David would be the new man at Antti Törmänen's side after Anders Olsson decided to move to Norway, where he will take over Stjernen Hockey as head coach.
As EHCB's team manager Martin Steinegger confirmed to the Bieler Tagblatt two weeks ago, also Mario Kogler and Rikard Franzén are (or were?) candidates for the vacant coaching position.
