Paok fired coach Pedoulakis, Gregory out?
Paok announced via their official website that they have ended their contract with Argiris Pedoulakis who was the head coach of Paok in the last 6 games for Paok in the greek league. This might come as a suprise to some people as a few days earlier the president of Paok, Dimitris Drosos made statements to basketblog.gr saying that he will support coach Pedoulakis like no other head coach was supported by a president before.. obviously that didn't happen..
The likeliest candidate to take over is the usual suspect, Giorgos Kalafatakis, who is used to being hired in order to save troubled teams. Paok also ended their contract with technical manager Nikos Boudouris who is an old veteran of Paok as coach Pedoulakis was his suggestion.
Further rumors from Greece say that Kenny Gregory is also to be released in order to get a low-post player in his place and also give some playing time to Alexis Kyritsis who was sidelined in the last game against Aris.
