Sharon DruckerSharon Drucker will be on the sidelines for Aris in the 2010-11 season after agreeing to terms of a contract on Saturday. Drucker, age 42, has been working as Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv's assistant coach for the last two seasons since he left Belgian powerhouse BC Oostende. Drucker has a wide experience as head coach, as he previously worked for Maccabi Raanana and Hapoel Jerusalem in Israel, Ural Great in Russia, Lietuvos Rytas in Lithuania and Oostende. Drucker led Hapoel to win the ULEB Cup title in 2004 - the first continental trophy for any Israeli team other than Maccabi. He led Ural Great to win the FIBA EuroCup Challenge in 2006 and also lifted the 2007 Belgian League and the 2008 Belgian Cup trophies with Oostende. As assistant coach, Drucker won the 2009 Israeli League and the 2010 Israeli Cup titles with Maccabi. "I am very happy to work for Aris. It is a great honor for me to coach a team with so much history and tradition," Drucker said. "It is also a challenge, an important step in my career. I have heard a lot about Aris fans and the fantastic atmosphere they create, and that they stand by their team even in defeat. We must work hard together in order to get the team where it deserves."
