Pascal Bieler, the assistant coach of the U23s, is leaving to take up the position of head coach at Regionalliga club TSV Steinbach with immediate effect.
The 36-year-old joined the BVB U23s as an assistant coach from Wuppertaler SV in 2020 and helped the team gain promotion to the 3. Liga in summer 2021. He has been assisting Christian Preusser on the sidelines since this season and ended his time with the team and staff with an away win – the first of the season – on Saturday.
"Pascal played a big part in our promotion to the 3. Liga. We're delighted that he was able to showcase himself for a position as head coach through his work here in Dortmund and wish him lots of success," said Ingo Preuss, the U23s' sporting director.
Kamil Bednarski of the BVB scouting department will take over the assistant coach role on an interim basis.
