No word yet on who Larranaga might be replacing (if anyone) on the C’s coaching staff. Here’s a little more info on Larranga via GoErie.com
Larranaga led Erie to the D-League playoffs in his two seasons guiding the BayHawks. He couldn’t be reached by phone tonight.
Former NBA head coach Mike Fratello had hired Larranaga to work as an assistant under Fratello in coaching the Ukrainian senior men’s national team in the qualifying round for the 2013 European Championships.
Larranaga had been scheduled to return to Erie in September to prepare for his third season leading the BayHawks. Larranaga had a year remaining on his contract.
