Henrik Markus Rödl (* 4. March 1969 in Offenbach am Main ) is a German basketball - coach and former basketball international. He has been the national coach of the German men's national team since September 2017. During his playing career, the winger was part of the German team of European champions in 1993 and won the German championship seven times in a row with Alba Berlin .

Player career

Rödl's father, Helmut, was a basketball coach. In 1987, the then 18-year-old EOSC Offenbach player made his debut as the first regional league player in the German national team . In 1989 he won bronze with the German student national team at the Universiade in Duisburg , before he went to the USA in the same year, where he played for the "Tar Heels", the basketball team of the University of North Carolina . In 1993 Rödl celebrated two of his greatest successes: he won the US college championship with the "tar heels" and surprisingly became European champion with the national team in front of his own audience .

The following season Rödl made his Bundesliga debut for Alba Berlin, where he soon made a name for himself as a committed defender and team captain . He stayed with the club for eleven years and scored 5228 points in 534 games during that time. In 1996 he was Germany's basketball player of the year . In the Rödl era, the capital city club won the German championship seven times in a row (1997-2003), four times the national cup competition and once the Korać Cup .

In 2002 he said goodbye to the national team by winning the bronze medal at the World Cup . Overall, Rödl, who also took part in the 1992 Olympic Games, scored 1,749 points in 178 international games in 15 years.

In the Bundesliga, Rödl scored a total of 3686 points. During his career, he was distinguished by his reliability, good defense and the ability to occupy several playing positions. Rödl's achievements and his value to the team often went unnoticed because he played without frills.

Coaching career

After Alba Berlin's elimination in the play-off semi- finals against Bamberg , Rödl declared his resignation as an active player on May 25, 2004 and played his last game on May 27, 2004. Since the 2004/05 season he has worked as a trainer at TuS Lichterfelde , the International Berlin Basketball Academy (IBBA) and as assistant trainer for Alba Berlin.

From January 2005 to June 2007 he was the head coach of Alba Berlin. In this position he became the 2006 German Cup winner. After being eliminated in the quarter-finals in 2007 against the Artland Dragons , Rödl was replaced in his position as head coach by Luka Pavicevic . He then became the sporting director of the entire youth program at Alba Berlin and coach of the NBBL team and the Alba Berlin regional league team.

From October 2008 to the start of the 2009/10 season, Rödl was also the coach of the German U20 national team.

With the Berlin NBBL team, Rödl was runner-up in the 2007/2008 season and champion in 2008/2009 . During the 2008/2009 and 2009/2010 seasons, the NBBL team under Rödl's leadership remained undefeated in 39 games across all seasons and only lost the final for the NBBL title in 2010 against Team Alba Urspring (cooperation partner of Alba Berlin). The Regionalliga team was with Rödl as coach in the 2009/10 season with 19-1 wins champion of the Regionalliga Nord (RLN) and made it to the ProB league.

With the beginning of the 2010/11 season, Henrik Rödl took over the post of head coach at Bundesliga club TBB Trier . In December 2012, Rödl prematurely extended his contract in Trier until the end of the 2015/2016 season.

In the summer of 2014 he took over the training of the German A2 national basketball team .

After deducting points due to incorrect information in the licensing process and due to filing for bankruptcy, TBB Trier was relegated from the 1st division in April 2015. After Treveri Basketball AG went bankrupt, all employees were laid off on May 1, 2015, including Henrik Rödl. In June 2015 Rödl announced that he would not be a coach for the newly founded Trier ball sports movement UG for the 2015/2016 season.

In summer 2015, he led the German national student team (identical to the A2 national team) to the silver medal at the Universiade in South Korea .

In January 2016, the German Basketball Association announced that it had signed Rödl as a full-time national coach. His area of ​​responsibility was described as follows: As before, he was responsible for the A2 national team as head coach and as assistant to national coach Chris Fleming for the senior national team. In addition, one of Rödl's activities was to act as the "coordinator of the perspective squad 2020".

In July 2016 he was in charge of the German U20 national team at the European Championship and led the DBB selection to fourth place.

On September 18, 2017 he was appointed by the DBB as the new national coach of the men's national team.
