Former ACB league champion Joan Plaza will coach Cajasol next season. The contract has an optional duration of one more year, until 2010/2011. He comes from Real Madrid, after three consecutive seasons in spanish powerhouse.
The young coach comes to Seville plenty of ambition, and he surely will provide Cajasol with lots of succes after too many consecutive dissapointing seasons. It's been nine years now since the last time sevilian team qualified for playoffs.
Plaza was the chosen one between a group of coaches with names like Julio Lamas, Gustavo Aranzana or Salva Maldonado. In the end, his well deserved reputation as a hard-working porfessional earned him a spot in the team for the next year.
