Francesco Nanni, Asst Coach Scafati Basket (Italy A2)

Sports Business Secrets
Season 2 || Episode 373

Welcome back to another edition of Sports Business Secrets!

Today’s guest is Francesco Nanni, Assistant Coach for Scafati Basket, a club who competes in Italy's Serie A2.

Francesco grew up playing basketball in Italy. He has been coaching basketball since the age of 16 and got his opportunity to become a professional coach in the 2nd division of Italy in 2017 with a team called Forli.

As you’ll hear in the podcast, assistant coaches overseas wear many hats, which means he has been able to conduct a wide range of tasks the past three seasons. From from on-court player development to extensive video analysis, to opponent scouting reports and game plans and much more.

We also talked about:

  • an overview of the professional basketball leagues in Italy

  • the process and certification requirements of becoming a coach

  • his modern coaching philosophies and techniques

  • some resources that he uses to become a better coach

  • some of the challenges he faces

And at the end we have the infamous Sports Business Secrets lightning round.

Francesco one of the kindest people I’ve met and I love his curiosity and passion for what he does.
