Jay Triano has stepped down as head coach of Canada’s Senior Men’s National Team.
“I can’t thank Jay enough for all he has done for basketball in Canada,” said Glen Grunwald, President & CEO. “As both a coach and player, Jay is a Canadian icon and has played a major role in the development of basketball within our country and we will forever be grateful for his contributions. After speaking with Jay, I’m hopeful we can find a role where he can continue to contribute to Canada Basketball in the future.”
Triano, 60, was the 10th head coach of the Senior Men’s National Team since 1954. A native of the Niagara region, Triano is one of Canada’s most recognizable and accomplished coaches, as well as being a talented player and three-time Olympian.
