A few hours after announcing the departure of JD Jacksonfollowing the elimination in the sixteenth round of the Coupe de France on Wednesday at home against Roanne (76-86), the BCM Gravelines-Dunkerque formalized Thursday the name of his successor at the head of the club’s professional workforce northerner.
This is Laurent Legname (45), without a club since leaving JL Bourg-en-Bresse at the end of last season, after a few months on the bench. The former coach of Dijon (2015-2021), winner of the Leaders Cup 2020, semi-finalist of the Champions League (BCL) 2020, was on the market, and officiated since the start of the Euroleague season as a consultant for the Skweek digital platform, the new holder of the broadcasting rights for the event.

The BCM has still not won away from home and occupies joint 12th place in the French Championship standings after three losses in a row.
