Zvezdan Mitrovic was appointed head coach of the Montenegrin national team ahead of the World Cup qualifiers that begin on November 26.

He replaces Bogdan Tanjevic who was hired as a technical director for the Italian Federation.

The Montenegrin head coach is currently at the helm of Monaco BC that competes in both the French League (Pro A) and the Basketball Champions League.
