After winning the Italian league title, Armani Exchange Milan will see some changes in the roster and among the coaching staff. 

Gianmarco Pozzecco, who joined Ettore Messina's coaching staff last summer, has been named as the new head coach of the Italian NT and will leave his role in Milan. 

Israeli coach Dan Shamir will replace him, multiple sources have told BasketNews. Shamir has been the head coach of the NBL side New Zealand Breakers for the past three seasons.

The Israeli coach has already worked as an assistant coach for Ettore Messina in the 2013-2014 season with CSKA Moscow, so the two will reunite in Milan. 

Shamir won't be the only addition to Milan's coaching staff for next season. Former Italian player Giuseppe Poeta will also join Ettore Messina's staff as an assistant.

Poeta, who spent his final season with Cremona, decided to retire from professional basketball and immediately got two important roles: the one in Milan and the other one as part of Gianmarco Pozzecco's coaching staff with the national team. 

Peppe Poeta's arrival in Milan was first reported by Sportando. The former point guard will take the place of Marco Esposito, who's expected to join Reggio Emilia's coaching staff.
