The Croatian Niksa Bavcevic is the new head coach of Spirou Charleroi. He replaces the club from the Euromillions Basketball League Brian Lynch, who last weekend was dismissed.
The 62-year-old Bavcevic know the Belgian league well. He was six years coach of Pepinster and three years of Mountains (by which he means the Belgian cup won in 2006). In 2003 and 2006, he was elected Coach of the Year in the Belgian league. His last job filled Bavcevic with the Swiss Neuchatel.
Brian Lynch was last Saturday by Spirou dismissed. The American spouse of Kim Clijsters paid the price for the lower results in Belgium and Europe. The competitienederlaag against Brussels (76-73) turned out to be the proverbial drop.
Bavcevic has signed a contract until June 2020. Kristof Michiels and Thomas Roijakkers will the Croat assist as assistants.
