Per Gazzetta Dello Sport, Fiat Torino head coach Larry Brown will temporarily leave the team to undergo an operation in the USA.

“I don’t know when I’ll come back,” said the 78-year-old Hall Of Fame coach in the post-game press conference of his team’s defeat to Venezia (75-76).

Torino hired Brown as head coach this summer. Yet, he coached the squad in just one EuroCup game (against Fraport Skyliners), one Italian League match and two Italian SuperCup games.
