Dimitris Itudis is no longer the coach of the Greek national team.
Dimitris Itudis is no longer the coach of the Greek national team, the local basketball association announced today. Itudis, who years ago was in the running for the coaching position on the bench of Slovenia, led Greece in two major competitions, the EuroBasket and the World Cup, but he did not become famous with them.
At the European Championship last year in Germany, Greece took fifth place, but at the World Championship this year in Asia, it was eliminated in the second part.
The Hellenic Basketball Federation announced that 53-year-old Itudis will not lead Greece in next summer’s Olympic qualifiers due to his commitments at Fenerbahce.
Itudisa was otherwise associated with the Slovenian bench by reputation Radovan Trifunović, but in the end KZS agreed to cooperate with Aleksandr Sekulić.
The Greek expert on the bench of Fenerbahce worked as an assistant for 13 years in the past Željko Obradović at Panathinaikos, and he was the head coach of CSKA Moscow for eight years before taking over the Turkish giants in 2022.
As the head coach, the 53-year-old Greek won two Euroleagues (both times he was also chosen as the coach of the year), six Russian championships, and was also the champion of the VTB league six times.
