Jasmin Repesa - Lottomatica RomaDespite his team doing better at the Euroleague level than at any time in generations, Lottomatica Roma head coach Jasmin Repesa resigned his post on Tuesday, the club said in a statement. The shock announcement came the night before Roma heads to play DKV Joventut in Badalona on Thursday, when assistant coach Nando Gentile will take over the visitors' bench on an interim basis. Roma has lost four straight games in the Italian League, but has won five straight Euroleague games to lead Group C with a 5-1 record and on the verge of clinching a berth in the Top 16. Repesa cited domestic results in statements quoted by the club. Roma has struggled at home in the Italian League, losing four straight games, and currently sits in ninth place in the domestic standings.
