The Jilin Tigers are taking a chance on a young up-and-coming spanish head coach in Curro Gomez as the two have agreed to terms for the 2014-2014 CBA season.

Gomez is already under a lot of pressure as the Tigers are quick to pull the trigger on coaches who under-perform. Just last season, Jilin fired their Croatian coach  Zivko Ljubojevic four games in the year after losing the first four games of the season.

The former player turned coach, Gomez, is making his first coaching appearance in China.
