CAI Zaragoza announced the departure of head coach Joaquin Ruiz on Sunday. Ruiz, 49, stepped in as head coach last season, replacing the late Jose Luis Abos. Ruiz worked as Abos's assistant coach for four seasons before the latter stepped down due to health problems. By the time Ruiz was fired, Zaragoza had a 1-6 record in the Spanish League and ranked second in Group C of the Eurocup Regular Season at 4-2. Last season, Ruiz could not lead the team to either the Spanish League playoffs or the Eurocup elimination rounds. CAI is working on a replacement and a new coach is expected to arrive early this week.
