He was an assistant coach with the Greek club Peristeri, from 2010 to 2011. He then became an assistant coach with the Greek Basket League club Panathinaikos, from 2012 to 2014.

He then worked as an assistant coach with the Russian VTB United League club UNICS Kazan, during the 2014–15 season. He was next the head coach of the Cypriot League club APOEL Nicosia, during the 2015–16 season. With APOEL Nicosia, he won the 2016 Cypriot Cup.

He then returned to Panathinaikos, as an assistant coach, in May 2016.
