Not so much an "After the K-League" as "After the Korean Olympic team", the German manager Dettmar Cramer, who became the first ever outright manager of the South Korean Olympic (U23) team in January 1991 for the qualification process for the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, passed away at the age of 90. He's more widely known for his association with Japanese football than with Korean football but was the first foreigner to take charge of a Korean squad at international level. He was apparently a Suwon Bluewings fan which is nice

Bayern Munich says its former coach Dettmar Cramer, who led the club to the European Cup titles in 1975 and 1976, has died. He was 90.
The well-traveled Cramer coached in Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Japan and many other countries, doing development work on behalf of the German football federation.
He was an assistant coach for Germany at the 1966 World Cup, when it lost the final to host England.
Popularly known as "Napoleon" for his small stature, Cramer also coached Eintracht Frankfurt, Bayer Leverkusen and Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga.
The German football federation says Cramer worked in more than 90 countries.
