Armani Milano announced that Simone Pianigiani parted ways with the club, with Ettore Messina being ready to replace him.
The Italian coach led Armani to one LegaBasket title and two Italian SuperCups. Yet, the team’s disappointing season this year cost him his place on the squad’s bench.
Now, Messina is set to replace him and take over, becoming both the president of basketball operations and the head coach of Armani.
Messina spent the past five years as an assistant coach of the San Antonio Spurs and will now return to Europe.
