Olympiacos announced on Sunday (06/10) that David Blatt will no longer be the head coach of the team.

The “Reds” parted ways with coach Blatt two days after the heavy defeat to ASVEL Villeurbanne in the opening round of the EuroLeague (82-63).

“After a long and respectful talk between the team owners and me, we decided to part ways for the best interest of both sides.

The time I spent in Greece with Olympiacos had substance and meaning. I feel grateful for the people and the family I found in here.

I have nothing but respect for the administration, the players, the staff that I enjoyed working with and I wish them the best.”
