Unicaja Malaga will be looking for a new coach after the dismissal on Wednesday of Luis Casimiro, who had guided the club for two and a half years. Unicaja's loss at AS Monaco the night before was the team's third in a row in the 7DAYS EuroCup and dropped it to 0-2 in Group E. Casimiro led Unicaja to a 30-17 record in the competition. They reached the quarterfinals in each of his first two seasons on the Unicaja bench.
Casimiro, 60, has also coached Alicante, Estudiantes Madrid, Seville and Herbalife Gran Canaria in the EuroCup as well as Fuenlabrada, Valladolid, Caceres and Manresa in the top Spanish League. He guided Manresa to its only Spanish crown in 1998.
Unicaja, the 2017 EuroCup champion, finished second in its regular-season group with a 7-3 record. Injuries have plagued the team this season with Alberto Diaz, Gal Mekel, Carlos Suarez and Jaime Fernandez all missing multiple games. Unicaja is expected to name a replacement in the coming days.
