The two-time French champion’s title as head coach, T.J. Parker, has been extended until 2026 in Aswel.

Double the French champion in the title with TJ Parker (38) on top, ASVEL has decided to extend the contract of its head coach for another three seasons. Already linked until 2023, the two parties will now share a common path until 2026.

Having been at the Rhone club for 10 years already, the former SLUC Nancy player was an assistant coach for a long time, before becoming head coach for the first time in 2017-2018. In 2020, when Zvezdan Mitrovic left, he was appointed head coach this time. Since then, he has won two titles in two seasons. This contract extension is in line with the desire to build in the long term. If the workforce changes often season after season, the Norman technician can still maintain a competitive pool. Now in the historic quadruple race in French basketball history, TJ Parker has the management’s full confidence:

TJ Parker commented: “Being there for ten years, and for another three years, is a real sign of confidence on the part of the leaders, and a reward for a job well done during all these years at the club. I feel good here, it’s my club. “My city, I got married here, and I see my children growing up here. Tony and Gaitan (Muller) have given me the opportunity to live a dream and I want to give back to them by giving everything I have. I am fortunate to have been able to coach a team that competes for the title every year and has big ambitions.” We have already come an amazing way and I am ready to continue to do everything in my power to crown the most successful club in French basketball.”

If some doubt his legitimacy as a coach because he is Tony Parker’s brother, his brother considers TJ Parker “one of the best coaches in Europe”.

“It’s a logical continuation of things, a sign of respect for someone who has won everything since becoming head coach. TJ has our full confidence, he’s grown a lot since he’s been here, and he keeps getting better every day. What he did in Final Four 2021 with a much smaller squad was huge, and his management The group during the 2022 qualifiers was perfect. We know that with him at the helm, we will still achieve great things!”

While waiting for the season to resume, Terence Jonathan Parker spends his month in July with the technical staff at the Milwaukee Bucks, during the Las Vegas Summer League.
