Belarus coach Rimantas Grigas has decided to continue coaching the national team as they prepare for Eurobasket Women next year in France.

Lithuanian Grigas led Belarus to a 6-2 record in Group A of the qualifiers which included Ukraine, Hungary, Israel and Portugal.

Grigas was appointed head coach at the start of the year following the departure of Anatoly Buyalski who decided not to extend his term with the squad.

Despite leading out the national team next year, Grigas will not be coaching at club level as his contract at UMMC in Russia ended.
