Serbian Sasa Obradovic has officially taken over as the new head coach of ASM Basketball. The team made the announcement on Monday, with both sides willing for a long term cooperation.
The 50-year-old coach spent the previous two seasons in Lokomotiv Kuban’s bench and parted ways with the Russian club four months ago. He’s been a free agent since.
Obradovic was named head coach of the year for the 2017/2018 EuroCup, and this will be his first time coaching in France, although as a player he had a stint with Limoges early in his career.
Obradovic replaces Saso Filipovski and follows the team’s loss to Lietuvos Rytas in a do-or-die EuroCup game and elimination from the competition’s quarterfinals.
