Limoges CSP names Vujosevic head coach

French champion Limoges CSP named Dusko Vujosevic as its new head coach on Wednesday. Vujosevic, 56, takes over for Philippe Herve, who resigned his position last week. He agreed to a contract through the end of next season. Vujosevic is among the most-respected coaches in the game and was the 2009 Alexander Gomelsky Euroleague Coach of the Year. He found much of his success with Partizan Belgrade, which he coached for a total of 16 seasons in four stints and helped many young players blossom, including Vlade Divac, Zarko Paspalj, Predrag Danilovic, Sasha Djordjevic, Nikola Pekovic, Milos Vujanic and Nenad Krstic. He also led Partizan to a total of 12 Yugoslav or Serbian League championships, five Adriatic League crowns, five Yugoslav or Serbian Cups, a pair of Euroleague Final four appearances and the 1989 Korac Cup. Vujosevic has also coached Crvena Zvezda and Radnicki in Serbia, Granada in Spain and Pallacanestro Brescia, Olimpia Pistoia and Scavolini Pesaro in Italy and has served as head coach of the Serbia & Montenegro national and the Montenegrin national team. At Limoges he is reunited with two guards he coached at Partizan: Bo McCalebb and Leo Westermann.
