Limoges, Coach Herve part ways
Two days after losing its Eurocup Last 32 opener, Limoges CSP and head coach Philippe Herve parted ways. Herve's assistants Bertrand Parvaud and Jim Bilba will take over head coaching duties on interim basis. The 47-year old Bilba - who as a player won the 1993 Euroleague title with Limoges and an Olympic silver medal with France - will lead Limoges in the Eurocup, starting with its Last 32 Round 2 road clash against PAOK Thessaloniki. It will be the head coaching debut for Bilba, while Parvaud is set to lead the team in the French League. So far this season under Herve, Limoges had 3-7 record in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Regular Season before losing its first Eurocup game this week. Limoges also stands at 7-8 in the French League. His contract was terminated by mutual agreement. Herve, 53, led Limoges to the French League title last season – the 11th in club history. In his four Euroleague campaigns - two with ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne, one with Entente Orleans and one with Limoges – Herve has 13 victories. He also has a 2-5 all-time record in the Eurocup.
