Sergio Hernandez has stopped being the coach of the Argentina national basketball team

Sergio Santos Hernandez has finished his term as head of the national basketball team, after 12 years in charge, in two different terms (2005-2010 and 2015-2021).

The message was published by the parent entity of the National Basketball Association (CAB) on various social media sites, in which it confirmed the closure of the stage for the second time as coach of the Argentine national team after winning participation in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

“I’m leaving happy and calm, because I know it’s the best for me and the national team,” Hernandez said goodbye after meeting FC Barcelona president Fabian Boro.

Hernandez led the national team at three Olympic Games (Beijing 2008, Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020) and as an assistant at London 2012, he won a bronze medal in Beijing.

In addition, he led three World Cup finals and today is the second highest-grossing winner in history (record 21-5), behind historic American coach Mike Krzyzewski.

“Uviga” leaves his position with the most official matches in history (116) and the best winning percentage (72.4%, record 84-32).

“This is not shocking at all because the important thing here is the national team, not me. The choice does not belong to anyone. Actually it belongs to everyone and that is the feeling that should prevail,” he said in his farewell.

He explained, “I don’t have many reasons to leave the national team, but my career has always had a hunch when to stop and start something new. And following it is something that gave me results. Today I feel that I have to go another path and that a new coach should start a new stage in the national team.” .
