Guy Goodes was named as the head coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv on June 19, 2014. He was sacked 17 months later, but at no stage was he the man in charge of calling the shots at Maccabi.
Goodes was handed the position almost by default, being the natural successor to David Blatt after serving as his assistant for four years before the latter departed for the NBA.
However, Goodes never had the trust of the Maccabi ownership. There were those in the fractured ownership who seemed to regret his appointment from day one and they treated him accordingly.
