The post-Simone Pianigiani era has not got off to a positive start as Hapoel Jerusalem are now searching for a new coach.

Last season’s EuroCup semi-finalists and Israeli Cup winners have parted ways with Greek tactician Fotis Katsikaris with the team struggling at 1-4 in the this season’s continental competition.

The team is now considering its options, which reportedly includes Oded Kattash and Ronen Ginzburg.

The team have also lost leading point guard Curtis Jerrells, who has joined Olimpia Milano.
