Steve Giatzoglou joins Goyang Orions coaching staff in Korea

Former player of Greek powerhouse Olympiacos, Steve Giatzoglou, has officially been hired as an assistant coach for the Goyang Orions.

Giatzoglou also played for the Greek national team where he won three European championships (1973, 1975, 1979). His coaching resume includes Olympiacos Piraeus, Aris Thessaloniki, Pagrati, Egaleo AO, Iraklis Thessaloniki, and AEK Athens, all clubs from the Greek League.

We are not sure where Giatzoglou’s connection to Korean basketball came from, but credit Goyang Orions for using a European coach to revamp their playing style.
