After his active career he became head coach of the French club Saint-Raphaël VHB. Furthermore, he has been head coach of the Romanian national team and HSV Hamburg. Before this season he left the French club Selestat to join HC Dobregea Sud.
Ambitious HC Dobregea Sud is placed 10th in the Romanian League with only 2 wins in 6 matches. The dismissing of Christian Gaudin comes only a week before HC Dobregea Sud faces the Norwegian club Bækkelaget SK in the 2nd Round of EHF Cup.
HC Dobrogea Sud is the second team of the Romanian League who already has dismissed a head coach. Also CSM Bucuresti has changed the coach (read more here).
