Dimitris Itoudis set to coach Banvit Bandirma

Banvit Bandirma, one of the finalists of TBL playoffs and Euroleague Qualification Round 2013-2014 season participant, agreed terms to fill head coaching position Greek trainer Dimitris Itoudis. After the end of the final series, former head coach Orhun Ene resigned from the club, ending an era for Banvit Basketball.

The replacement of Ene with Itoudis is a significantly interesting choice because the club, well established financially over the years, decided to hand in the duty for the first time to foreign hands. They will attend to Euroleague qualification round for the first time within the club history; therefore, the expectations should clearly be high for this opportunity.

Dimitris Itoudis has been an assistant to Zeljko Obradovic for more than 10 years. So, it's a great experience as being a head coach for him as well. Last year, he commented on Euroleague games in the official website of the competition.

In short, It's been a great news for Turkish Basketball League's upcoming season.
