“A new BC Khimki head coach will be a well-known Lithuanian specialist, an Olympic champion — Rimas Kurtinaitis. In 2009 Lietuvos Rytas with Kurtinaitis won the European Cup, defeated BC Khimki in the final — it was one of the most painful defeats in our history. Rimas is a very hard-working coach. Moreover the very tasks before the team have not been removed — it's still a good performance in the final of VTB United League, as well as in the PBL Championship which ensures the entrance to Euroleague. We hope that together with Rimas we will achieve all the goals,” said Victor Bychkov, the General Manager of Khimki.

A new coach is going to, hopefully, bring new hope for the BC Khimki team. Their run at the Euroleague this season wasn't quite as successful so they are hoping to make improvements for next year. This new head coach will be put to the test right away. This gives fans of BC Khimki something to look forward, as well as the entire club!
