Daniel Varga will leave OSC at the end of the season, with assistant coach Robert Kovacs taking the reins from the beginning of the 2024-25 season.
Varga, an Olympic Champion at the 2008 Olympic Games, ended his playing career in 2018. Two years later, Varga replaced Lajos Vad (the current Dunaujvaros coach) in taking over as the head coach of OSC, and despite competing well in European Competitions and domestically in Hungary, Varga could only guide his side to a handful of silver medals in the national championships, the Hungarian Cup, and the 2021 LEN Cup.
The club has confirmed that Robert Kovacs will be Daniel Varga's replacement. Kovacs, a highly respected figure in Hungarian water polo, boasts a distinguished playing career at Vasas. His coaching journey, including stints with the junior ranks at UVSE and Vasas, gained notable recognition when he guided Hungary U20s to a World title in Otopeni.
Kovacs isn't the only member of the OSC family to change roles for next season. The current club captain, Marton Toth, will hang up his cap next season and transition to become the club's first team manager.
