Dimitris Itoudis announced that he’s leaving CSKA Moscow after eight years as head coach of the team. His contract was set to expire in 2023 but he and the club mutually agreed to part ways.

“We decided with the club to go different ways,” Itoudis said after the end of Game 7 of the VTB League Finals vs. Zenit St. Petersburg. “But I don’t say goodbye. I say ‘see you around’. Because CSKA is a great club. With a great tradition and a great future.”

Asked about his next team, Dimitris Itoudis said that his focus right now is the Greek national team ahead of the 2022 EuroBasket. “The only thing that I know is that as soon I’m going back to Greece I have the national team. Immediately. That’s my next club.”

“Just to clarify: My next club is the Greek national team. We came to this mutual understanding with Andrey Vatutin.”

Itoudis departs from CSKA after a highly successful run that included the EuroLeague championship titles of 2016 and 2018 and the VTB League championship titles of 2015 through 2021 (minus the 2020 season that was canceled due to COVID-19).
