Croatian NT head coach Josip “Joke” Vrankovic took over as the head coach of the struggling Croatian basketball giant Cibona Zagreb. Terms of the two-year deal remain undisclosed.
Interestingly enough Vrankovic inherited the head coaching position from Drazen Anzulovic who was the major runner-up right next to Vrankovic for the Croatian NT head coaching vacancy back in 2010.
This will be Vrankovic’s second stint with Cibona Zagreb as he already coached the team back in 2007/08 season but was forced to resign midway through the season due to the poor W/L record.
Cibona Zagreb is currently last placed team of Croatian Championship with 0-2 record after two embarrassing, both -23pts losses from Borik Puntamika and Zadar.
Cibona’s only remaining chance to keep it’s Adriatic League qualification chances alive is to battle it’s way to the semifinals of Croatian Championship.
