Francesco Nanni, Asst Coach Scafati Basket (Italy A2)
Sports Business Secrets
Season 2 || Episode 373
Welcome back to another edition of Sports Business Secrets!
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.
