During his interview, Wizard Stelio DeRocco took one of Mark’s questions in a different direction than Mark had intended. It ended up being one of the most interesting and insightful bits of conversation we’ve had thus far. In it Stelio talks about how important it is for the coach to be consistent in how they present themselves and work with the team.
Stelio DeRocco was the head coach of the Australian National Team during the 2000 Olympic cycle. He later went on to coach the national team for his native Canada, leading them to a NORCECA Championship and to compete in the World Cup. His coaching career followed almost immediately on the heels of his career as a player in Italy. He lead Italian side Montichiari to two European Cups and was multiple league and cup titles in Romania with Constanta.
