Pini Gershon, the most successful coach in Israeli basketball history, has found himself a new challenge.

The 59-year-old announced on Saturday night that he will join the management of struggling BSL club Hapoel Holon.

Gershon, who won three European cups as coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv as well as numerous local titles, will be chairman of the management group currently running Holon and is expected to help the club attract sponsors.

Gershon will be returning to Holon after more than 30 years, having guided the team during one of his first coaching jobs, between 1977 and 1979.

“Holon is one of the top three clubs in the country,” Gershon said after one of several meetings with Holon Mayor Moti Sasson on Thursday.

“We need patience because good things take time to build. I’ve said no to big clubs in Europe, but I’m saying yes to Holon, and for free.”

One of Gershon’s first moves is expected to be the hiring of former Bnei Hasharon coach Dan Shamir, who worked under him at Maccabi.
