Olympiacos announced the end of their co-operation with coach David Blatt after one season.

The team’s discouraging performance against ASVEL in the EuroLeague opener added up to a peculiar season, thus it was decided that they will go on with a different coach in the bench.

“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”, commented Blatt upon his departure.

Kestutis Kemzura will serve as the team’s interim coach for the upcoming EuroLeague game against Valencia.
