Garbelotto quits Tigers

Garbelotto quits Tigers

Coach Tony Garbelotto has left Mersey Tigers after four seasons in charge.

Coach Tony Garbelotto has left Mersey Tigers after four seasons in charge.

Garbelotto, 43, was out of contract with the Liverpool-based club and will now move to Germany to coach Pro A team Heidelberg.

The Tigers endured a difficult 2011-12 season, finishing outside the play-offs, just a year after they won a treble of titles – the BBL Trophy, BBL Championship and BBL play-offs.

In fact, last season was the only year with the Tigers that Garbelotto didn’t collect any silverware, having won the BBL Cup in 2008/09 and the play-offs in 2009/10.

It is likely to be another turbulent summer for Mersey, who have been hit with financial difficulties for the past 18 months.
