David Blatt, who recently discussed his plans about potentially pursuing opportunities outside basketball, is considering retirement after decades of fully dedicating himself to the sport. He will touch his retiring thoughts in an interview set to broadcast on the Israeli channel 12 on Friday.

The 60-year-old Israeli-American recently parted ways with Olympiacos, his fifth EuroLeague team. He previously took over Maccabi Tel Aviv, Benetton Treviso, Efes Pilsen and Darussafaka in Europe’s premier competition. The rest of his head coaching work include the Russian and Israeli national teams, the Cleveland Cavaliers as well.

A couple of months before departing from the Reds, Blatt announced that he had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
