Ettore Messina’s Career

As a head coach, he has won four EuroLeague titles. Messina is widely recognized as one of Europe’s top basketball coaches, having been designated one of the 50 Greatest EuroLeague Contributors in 2008. In the years 1998, 2001, and 2005, he was crowned the Italian League’s Best Coach three times. He’s also been voted Coach of the Year in the EuroLeague twice, in 2006 and 2008. In 2008, he was elected to the Italian Basketball Hall of Fame, and in 2019, he was elected to the Russian VTB United League Hall of Fame. From 2014 until 2019, Messina served as an assistant coach for Gregg Popovich with the San Antonio Spurs. Messina was the head coach of Virtus Bologna in the Italian League for two distinct periods (1989–1993 and 1997–2002). In the 1989–90 season, he defeated Real Madrid in Florence to win the Italian Cup and the FIBA Cup Winners’ Cup, the second-tier European-wide league. In 1993, he also won the national title of the Italian League. In both 1997–98 and 2000–01, during his second term with Virtus, he coached the team to first-tier level European-wide EuroLeague championships. In 1998 and 2001, he added two Italian League titles to his trophy cabinet, as well as three Italian Cup titles in 1999, 2001, and 2002.

Messina then became the head coach of Benetton Treviso in the Italian League, where he took over from Mike D’Antoni in 2002. He spent three seasons there. He won the Italian League Championship with Treviso in 2003, as well as the Italian Cup three times, for a total of five straight titles with two separate clubs. Messina subsequently joined the Russian club CSKA Moscow in 2005, and in his first season there, he led the team to the EuroLeague title and the coveted Triple Crown. Under Messina’s leadership, CSKA won the EuroLeague championship for the sixth time on 4 May 2008, defeating Maccabi Tel Aviv in the 2007–08 Madrid edition of the EuroLeague Final Four. During the 2008–09 season, he resigned from CSKA after leading them to the Russian Championship and the EuroLeague Final. He was given a role as technical director at CSKA, but he had not chosen whether or not he wanted to stay with the club at the time of his resignation. Messina was named the new head coach of Real Madrid in the Spanish League on June 18, 2009, and signed a contract with the club the next day. Messina resigned as Real Madrid’s head coach in March 2011 after the club suffered a string of dismal performances.

Messina was routinely linked to empty NBA coaching positions, according to reports. He was, for example, one of several candidates for the Sacramento Kings’ head coaching job, and it was also believed that he would join the coaching staff of the Toronto Raptors and San Antonio Spurs. For the 2011–12 season, Messina agreed to join the Los Angeles Lakers coaching staff as a full-time consultant to the head coach, as part of head coach Mike Brown’s coaching staff. Messina left his post as a consultant for the Los Angeles Lakers in June 2012 and returned to CSKA Moscow to take over as head coach.  He parted ways with CSKA Moscow in June 2014.

Messina was hired as an assistant coach by the San Antonio Spurs on July 15, 2014. Due to Gregg Popovich’s unable to travel with the team at the moment, Messina would coach the Spurs in a 121–90 preseason win over the Phoenix Suns on October 16, 2014.

In the 2016 NBA Rising Stars Challenge, Messina would eventually become the World Team’s head coach. Due to Gregg Popovich’s absence for a family issue on March 7–8, 2016, Messina took over as head coach of the Spurs for two games. Due to Popovich’s departure from the team the night before his wife’s death, Messina briefly took over head coaching duties of the club in their playoff series against the Golden State Warriors on April 19, 2018.

Messina decided to become the next head coach and President of Basketball Operations of the Italian team Olimpia Milano on June 11, 2019, after signing a three-year contract.
