Yeah he should have waited until the inevitable loss to Latvia in the final game, followed by our traditional relegation.

But seriously, I know Höfner doesn't have much to work with here but he has failed to keep the team in the top group every time he's had the chance. It's been a continous cycle of relegation and promotion and relegation again for 10 years or so. Zero progress made. Usually Germany has one surprisingly good underdog performance early in the tournament only to then fold like a cheap tent and embarrass themselves with horrible relegation round games. It's happened often enough to allow blaming the coach by now.

But since nobody outside a few hockey geeks cares about junior hockey in Germany, nobody else seems to want this thankless job, and he's buddies with the rest of the Bavarian Mafia that is the German hockey federation, he'll have the coaching job as long as he wants it.
