Dolomiti Energia Trento made official on Thursday evening the signing of Paolo Galbiati as new head coach for the next three seasons. Galbiati, 39, spent last season as an assistant coach at Varese of Italy. Before that, he spent two seasons as head coach of Cremona in the Italian League.
Galbiati had a brief career as a player, and in 2007 he already started coaching youth teams, and he worked his way up until he won the U17 league title with Olimpia Milan in 2013. In 2016 he made his debut in the Italian League as an assistant coach to Luca Banchi first and Carlo Recalcati later in Turin. A couple of years later, in 2018, Galbiati led Turin to the Italian Cup trophy. He stayed in Turin the following season to assist Larry Brown and later to take the lead once more, and after that he joined Biella, where he could not finish the 2019-20 season due to COVID.
In 2021 and 2022, Galbiati was also part of the technical staff at the Italian national team, with which he took part in the Tokyo Olympics.
