The former Dragon will replace Gerd Zenhäusern who, in December, had been appointed as assistant team manager.

Sandy Jeannin, currently working with CP Fleurier (Regio League) as head coach, is therefore returning to the organization where he ended his career as a professional player in 2015. The 44-year-old will take over his new duty as of May 2021 and will stay for at least two seasons, La Liberté reports. After that, if the structure in place is satisfactory, Jeannin will be offered a contract for an indefinite period of time.

The former captain of the Dragons will be initially guided in his new role by Zenhäusern: "Gerd will keep one foot in the junior movement," confirms Raphaël Berger, CEO of HC Fribourg-Gottéron. "The training center as we know it, is because of his work. It makes sense that he's making the transition."

"The time has come for me to take up a new challenge," reveals Jeannin to Arcinfo, although he admits that it is a heartbreaker to leave CP Fleurier under the current conditions. "For my personal development, it's a fairly logical step forward. I'm going to learn another job, so to speak, since I'll be less on the ice. I will have to take care of more administrative and strategic things."
