The ICG Fuerza Lleida has reached an agreement with the Catalan coach Jordi Ribas (Barcelona, ??1975) to join the club as assistant coach to Gerard Find. It will complete, together with Marco Díaz and Find himself, the team of technicians of the professional staff. Ribas, a good connoisseur of the category and with extensive experience in professional basketball, has been the last two seasons exercising this same task as assistant coach in the ranks of Melilla, also in the LEB Oro.
Ribas began his career as a coach in the lower categories of FC Barcelona, ??from where he later went on to JAC Sants and CB L’Hospitalet. In a second stage with the Catalans he won the title of champion of Spain in the cadet category in 2010, and from there he went to CB Prat, where he had the first experience with a professional team, obtaining promotion to LEB Oro as an assistant coach. He also has international experience, having coached Weder in the German 2nd division in 2016. Prat and Melilla were his last destinations before arriving in Lleida, where he signed for a season with the aim of providing experience and knowledge, also in the application of new technologies in basketball, a facet in which Ribas stands out especially.
