After a poor season by its standards, Hapoel Jerusalem has decided that Guy Goodes is the man to take it forward. Goodes signed a contract on Monday to coach the State Cup holder and will be looking to take the team back to the BSL Final Four after last season's disappointing league campaign. The 37-year-old was the assistant coach at Maccabi Tel Aviv in the last two seasons and guided Maccabi Rishon Lezion to an excellent season three years ago. "I am very happy to come to Hapoel Jerusalem. It is a big club with amazing fans. This club should be at the top all the time and I hope together we will achieve much," Goodes told the official Hapoel Jerusalem Web site. "This is an opportunity for me to succeed at a big team. Hapoel Jerusalem has a long and respected tradition in Israeli and European basketball and I believe we will be able to continue this tradition and lead the club to further success." Meanwhile, it was also announced on Monday that Dan Shamir will team-up with David Blatt once more next season after signing a contract as the assistant coach at Dynamo Moscow. Shamir led Hapoel Jerusalem to two State Cups in his first two seasons at the club, but left Malha in the latter stages of last season after a poor run in the BSL which ended with Jerusalem finishing in fifth place. Blatt and Shamir were both assistants to Pini Gershon at Maccabi Tel Aviv in 2004 and helped the team to the Euroleague title. Also Monday, Rishon Lezion announced that Ziv Erez, who replaced Shamir at Jerusalem, will be the team's new coach. Erez replaces Ofer Berkowitz, who helped Rishon escape relegation with an impressive run at the end of last season. Yadid Berman contributed to this report.
