Napoli today announced via their website that they have ended their contract with head coach Piero Bucchi. According to italian media Bucchi is being offered the position of head coach to Armani Milano for next year.
Napoli in their announcement thanked Bucchi for his work with the team and wished him all the best in the future. Bucchi started as an assistant coach to Ettore Messina and made his career in teams such as Rimini, Benetton, Slask Wroclaw, Napoli and Roma. Rumors in Italy say that all the moves are being directed by Messina himself that might probably return for the year 2009-2010 as head coach and Bucchi as his assistant.
Bucchi is rumored to bring Richard Mason Rocca (2.06-PF/C) with him from Napoli and is already planning the roster for next year as quite a few players have been lost so far like Smith, Green, Bulleri, Watson and potentionally the great hope of italian basketball Luca Vitali.
