The Jazz will be hiring Greek coach Fotis Katsikaris as an assistant on their coaching staff.
Katsikaris has coached throughout Europe, including stints in Greece, Russia, Spain and Israel. In 2013, while coaching Spanish team Bilbao, he was named Coach of the Year in EuroCup and he has also served as the head coach of the Russian and Greek men’s national teams, coaching Bucks’ star Giannis Antetokounmpo in 2016. General manager Dennis Lindsey said last month that he expected to retain most of the Jazz assistants, and in the time since, Utah has promoted Antonio Lang to the front of the bench and quietly extended Johnnie Bryant. Alex Jensen will be the lead assistant in Kokoskov’s place while Bryant and Lang will be the other two assistant coaches on the bench with Jensen and Snyder.
