Basketball: GB women opt for Damian Jennings as coach
Monday 25 March 2013
Damian Jennings has been named the new head coach of the Great Britain women’s basketball team ahead of a crucial summer.
Jennings, who was an assistant to previous head coach Tom Maher at last summer’s London Olympics, has less than three months to make his mark before this summer’s EuroBasket tips off in France on 15 June.
“I’m honoured to have been given the chance to lead British Basketball’s women’s programme into EuroBasket 2013,” Jennings said. “We are ambitious and we want to build a team capable of challenging for honours at the top of the international game.”
