Sergio Scariolo is a strong candidate for Virtus Bologna head coaching job, as reported by Il Corriere dello Sport and confirmed to Sportando.
Sasha Djordjevic’s departure from Virtus Bologna was almost certain when Serie A playoffs started, also considering the elimination in EuroCup semifinals against Unics Kazan and the missed chance to play in EuroLeague next season.
But Virtus Bologna dominated the Serie A playoffs and the finals against Olimpia Milano winning the title after twenty years.
After Scudetto, Virtus Bologna owner Massimo Zanetti said that he will see, talk and negotiate with Djordjevic whose future could be far from Bologna.
Scariolo recently extended the contract with Toronto Raptors but he is open to a return to Italy where he coached Olimpia Milano from 2011 to 2013.
