Pallacanestro Brescia and head coach Alessandro Magro agreed to keep working together until the end of the 2023-24 season.
Brescia keeps Coach Magro
Magro, age 40, comes off his first season as Brescia's head coach, one in which the team ranked third at the end of the Italian League regular season with a 21-9 record. He helped Brescia reach the Italian League playoffs and the Italian Cup semifinals. Magro previously worked with the team as assistant coach from 2016 to 2019. He also coached MKS Dabrowa Gornicza of Poland and Paffoni Omegna of Italy, and had a long career as assistant coach in teams like Livorno Basket, Montepaschi Siena and Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar.
"The journey continues. I am happy and proud to be able to continue the work we started a year ago," Coach Magro said after the agreement. "The relationship of great mutual esteem that exists with Mauro Ferrari and the will to continue growing together will be the basis of the new season. What we experienced in the first year of this new project alone was incredible, the result of a vision, work and sharing between the owners, the club - in the figures of Marco De Benedetto, Marco Patuelli and the members of the office - and of all my staff."
