Saso Filipovski to coach Stelmet ZG

Saso Filipovski

Stelmet Zielona Gora (Poland-TBL) has hired Slovenian coach Saso Filipovski to take up the team’s head coaching duties this 2014-15. Stelmet Zeilona Gora is currently 0-4 in Group F of the 2014-15 Eurocup standings. Saso was let go by Union Olimpija Ljubljana (Slovenia-Telemach League) in April 2014. Filipovski had been with the team since 2011. He guided Union Olimpija to back-to-back Slovenian Cup titles in 2012 and in 2013.

Unfortunately, team management was been unhappy with the team’s losing three out of their last nine games. They were at the time in second place with their 6-3 record, behind Krka which had an untarnished 9-0 record. Union Olimpija, however, recently lost to third-place Maribor Messer 67-72 and it was after this game that the team let go of Filipovski.
