Changes in the coaching staff are made not only for the Austrians men's team, but also for the ladies before the start of the new season. Former world class jumper Andreas Felder is the successor of Harald Rodlauer as head coach of the team.

"I'm looking forward to this task. I've already experienced a lot as a coach and worked with young athletes and also national teams but coaching ladies is new for me. This is a big challenge and I'm looking forward to it", Andreas Felder said in a media release of the Austrian Ski Association.

The 52-year-old former overall World Cup winner and World Champion is already working as a coach since 1992 and was already head coach of the Austrian men's ski jumping team (1995 - 1997) and the nordic combined team (2000 - 2006). Recently Andreas Felder was working with the Tyrolean Ski Association.
