Tabak up for Mac TA challenge

New Maccabi Tel Aviv head coach Zan Tabak acknowledged the high expectations he faces in his new job on Tuesday, but said there was no way he was going to turn down the opportunity to coach the yellow-and-blue.

The 45-year-old Croatian was unveiled as Maccabi’s new coach a day after signing a deal until the end of next season to replace the sacked Guy Goodes.

Maccabi won its two BSL games under assistant coach Avi Even following Goodes’s firing to improve to 5-2, but it remains in real danger of failing to qualify for the Euroleague Top 16 for the first time ever, after falling to 1-4 with a home defeat to Darussafaka Istanbul last week.
