BC KHIMKI, coach Scariolo part ways 21  december  2010

He guided Khimki to the Euroleague Top 16 in the club’s Euroleague debut. Scariolo led Khimki to a perfect 6-0 record in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Qualifying Rounds earlier on this season, but the team ran out of chances to reach the Top 16 with a road loss against Partizan mt:s last week.

We did many good things during this time and Khimki is still in the group of teams that leads the Russian League," Scariolo said. "It is a very difficult decision for me, but at the same time, I believe that it was the best thing to do for me and the team."
