Maccabi Tel Aviv has reached an agreement with the 47-year-old Israeli head coach Oded Kattash, sources confirmed to BasketNews.

Kattash was in talks with Maccabi last season when the Israeli club parted ways with Ioannis Sfairopoulos. However, both sides couldn't find a long-term agreement.

Kattash will have a responsibility to bring back titles to Yad Eliyahu. For the first time in 14 years, Maccabi didn't win a single domestic trophy this year.

Moses Barda of One was the first to report the news about Maccabi finalizing an agreement with Kattash. The Israeli journalist also says that Igor Milicic might join him as an assistant coach. 

Per the report, Kattash will give a final answer on Scottie Wilbekin's future at the club. Maccabi's leader reportedly has interest from the EuroLeague powerhouses. But as Barda reports, Tel Aviv's front office didn't receive any particular offer yet.

Kattash returns to Maccabi after 14 years. In 2007-08, Kattash coached Maccabi but resigned in the middle of the season.

Previously Kattash has coached Panathinaikos Athens. He won the Greek league and Greek Cup in 2021.

From 2018 to 2021, Kattash worked in Hapoel Jerusalem and lifted the Israeli Cup twice (2019, 2020).

Maccabi's coaching candidates were weighed in on the recent URBONUS podcast:

BasketNews' Orazio Cauchi analyzed Maccabi's offseason tasks, with the Israeli powerhouse facing serious changes.
