Vince’s role and contribution to the London Lions has proven to be nothing short of legendary. A life-long, celebrated champion of British basketball and the community that supports it, boasting a raft of career milestones that have redefined the history of the sport in the UK, and will continue to impact its evolution for decades to come.
From serving as the first British coach since Nick Nurse in 2002 to lead a win in a European competition, to being the only British Coach to advance the team in a European tournament to its current position; Vince’s iconoclastic career has reformed how UK basketball is played and perceived by those on and off the court, both home and away.
Vince Macaulay said:
“All good things come to an end, I am happy to leave the club in the position it is in, off the floor in safe hands with our current ownership and on the floor to be undefeated at home in European Competition and in a great position to win the three remaining domestic Trophies. The player pathway we have in place will surely be a hotbed for the growth of the next British Stars. I wish everyone at the club nothing but the best in the future – for me I will take time off for now, but for sure, the ball will keep on bouncing.
The London Lions will always remain avid supporters of Vince as he pursues his future endeavours, we wish to express our utmost gratitude for his history defining contribution to the club, and the sport.
