Drucker Departs Oostende To Assist Gershon

02 December 2008

Oostende coach Sharon Drucker has left the club before its EuroChallenge clash with CCK-VVS Samara on Tuesday and joined Maccabi Tel Aviv as an assistant to their new boss Pini Gershon.

Umberto Badioli, an assistant to Drucker at Oostende, has taken the reins of the Belgian side.

Drucker, 41, has led teams like Hapoel Jerusalem, Ural Great, Lietuvos Rytas and Oostende. He steered Hapoel to ULEB Cup glory and Ural Great to a EuroCup Challenge crown.

Last season he and Oostende won the Belgium Cup.

Gershon, who also serves as the Bulgaria national team boss, said of Drucker's arrival: "I think Sharon will strengthen our coaching staff. This is my third tenure at Maccabi and I've always tried to sign top coaches as assistants."

Oostende upset BC Triumph in the EuroChallenge Qualifying Round 1 over two legs and then beat Le Havre in the Qualifying Round 2.

Last week, they dropped their Regular Season opener to Virtus Bologna in Italy, 70-69.
