Kapoulas Named Molten BBL Coach Of The Year

Bristol Flyers Head Coach Andreas Kapoulas has won the Molten BBL Coach of the Year award for the first time.

The award is deserved recognition of a brilliant debut season for the club in the British Basketball League where they finished eighth, making the play-offs, in addition to reaching the Cup semi-finals.

Coach K narrowly edged out 2014 recipient Fab Flournoy of Newcastle Eagles in the voting among Basketball Journalists Association members – with 2013 victor, Rob Paternostro of Leicester Riders, in third.

“I feel honoured and very thankful. It has been a great first year for the Club in the BBL and to receive the award is very humbling.” Kapoulas said.

“There are a lot of people that contribute in an award like this and it is a great recognition for the hard work that all of us, staff, coaches, players, volunteers have put in this season and over the last 10 last years.

“The great thing is that this is just the start of life in the BBL for our club. The support of Bristol Sport and SGS College has been fantastic and there is so much more to come from us.”

The Flyers, along with fellow newcomers Leeds Force, have been a buoyant addition to the BBL this year with both clubs proving competitive amid the established sides.
