South Korea has gone through three head coaches on its senior national football team since late 2011, a sign of volatility not lost on the sport’s new technical chief.

Lee Yong-soo, the incoming head of the technical committee at the Korea Football Association (KFA), said in his inaugural press conference Monday that he wants to bring a sense of greater stability at the top.

South Korea has been seeking a new head coach since Hong Myung-bo resigned from the post on July 10, taking the blame for the country’s winless World Cup campaign in Brazil. Lee, whose main responsibility is to nominate national team head coaches, insisted on Monday he will try to ensure the new bench boss will have plenty of time to work with the squad for the next World Cup in 2018 in Russia.

South Korea’s next major international tournament at the senior level will be the 2015 Asian Cup in Australia in January. The country will have a handful of friendly matches as part of its preparation in September, October and November.
