Patrice Bosch joined Genève-Servette HC as head coach of their U20 two years ago. He took over for Patrick Emond, who was promoted to head coach of the main squad. Now, the 48-year-old will move up to coach in the National League as well. Blick already reported that he will join HC Lugano as assistant earlier today, the club now officially announced him.
Prior to his stint at Lake Geneva, Swiss-Canadian Bosch was working with teams on various levels of Quebec's junior hockey system, with two seasons as head coach of the Chicoutimi Saguenéens (QMJHL).
Paul Di Pietro, part of Lugano's coaching staff since 2019, will extend his tenure with the club. The 50-year-old has signed a new one-year deal. Rob Cookson, who joined the Bianconeri alongside Di Pietro, seems to no longer be part of the main squad's coaching staff.
