As the Berlin Thunder announced, the offensive line and special teams coaches have been found in the signing of Jörg Bauerfeind and his eight year-younger brother Ron Bauerfeind. Jörg Bauerfeind will take over as the special teams coach as well as Offensive Line coach, while Ron will help on the offensive line as an assistant.

Both coaches had their home with the Berlin Adler, while now making the step into the best European league. After signing Christopher Kuhfeldt as defensive coordinator/strength & conditioning coach and Johnny Schmuck as head coach, the coaching staff grows even more.

New Head Coach Johnny Schmuck is convinced of both coaches: "With Jörg and Ron we have the most important coaching position on the offensive side perfectly covered. Jörg is an extremely experienced coach who will make sure that our O-Line can constantly improve and develop and will be 'ready for combat'. He brings exactly the mix of old- and new-school that we are looking for and need. We are lucky to have his brother Ron on board as an assistant, who also coaches the unit when Jörg is in charge of the special teams. He has a lot of experience there and coordinated it successfully last year with the Berlin Adler. I'm very happy to be able to work with both of them in the coming season and I'm convinced that they are the optimal line-up."

The Thunder have already signed their quarterback Joe Germinerio, "Defensive Player of the Year" Kyle Kitchens, defensive talent Ben Nauenburg, as well as re-signed Joc Crawford and Nicolai Schumann. The signs are set for attack.
