Dusan
Radivojevic
This is an interesting story of a Serb who earns his bread in a football country, Brazil doing basketball coach job. This is a story of Dusan Radivojevic (201-F-85, college: Arkansas Tech).

Tell us the beginning of his career, where you were born, first step in career?

I was born August 7th, 1985 in Cacak. I have start playing basketball when I was 10 years old, following footsteps of my father and my older brother, who were basketball players as well. When I turned 15, my older brother Vojislav helped me to move to Belgrade and that was the moment where basketball became everything in my life. Years that I have spent playing for BC Beopetrol, where I was playing in base categories, really set me up for everything that came later on. While playing there I have won multiple national championships in cadet and junior category and in 2005, I was recruited from Bowling Green State University to play NCAA basketball, which was the opportunity that I could not miss. Two years that I have spent in Bowling Green under coach Dan Dakich where by far the most challenging years of my life. At the beginning, I really had hard time to adapt to American culture. I did not speak English very well, so that made everything little more difficult, but as the time progressed, everything got better. In 2007, coach Dakich resigned at Bowling Green State University and that year I have moved to Arkansas Tech University. That was probably the best possible choice because that was the school that I have graduated and basketball wise, we had a lot of success.

What made you think and how you ended up in Brazil, the country were is football sport number one?

It is kind of interesting story how all that happens. When I moved to Arkansas Tech, I have met the girl from Brazil, which also played basketball at the same university. After several years of dating, we decided to get married and time wise, everything fell in place. After I graduated, I received the offer from Brazilian team to play Brazilian National League and I decided to take that chance. I have played professionally for couple of years until I discover world of basketball coaching, which became my life occupation.

What are your experiences in Brazil?

As every other beginning, I have to admit that it was hard. I did not speak any Portuguese and my wife was still in United States at that moment so I really had hard time communicating with people. On the other hand, cultural difference between Brazilians and Serbians are very small, so I did not have hard time with that. The moment I learned Portuguese, everything became even easier, but to be very honest, I never felt like a stranger in Brazil. People here are very welcoming.

Tell us a little about their league, the quality? Can their clubs compere to European?

In general, Brazilian basketball is getting much better, especially in last six years. In comparison to European basketball, Brazil is unfortunately very far away. The biggest problem of Brazilian basketball is work with base categories because as a country, Brazil poses enormous basketball potential, but work with base categories is not at the level where it is suppose to be yet, but some crucial changes are made in that area, so lets see what future is going to bring. On the other hand, there is bigger and bigger influence of Argentineans coaches, which in my opinion is very important for Brazilian basketball to grow. Coach Ruben Magnano is coach of National Team and there is several more coaches from outside of Brazil that work with professional teams.

Attendance of league, are as passionate fans when it comes to football?

No, not even close. You cannot compare anything else in Brazil with football, but basketball becoming bigger. If I am not wrong, six years ago, Brazilin National League changed structure and since then there is a lot more media coverage involved about basketball. There is more and more games being nationally televised, which definitely help Brazilian basketball grow even faster.

Since I know that you support Crvena zvezda, how are you satisfied with the signups for now and would like to one day be a youth team coach, or even the first coach of club that you love?

To become coach of Crvena zvezda one day would be dream come true. I still have a lot to learn to get to that level of basketball coaching, but I am looking up to challenge. Who knows what future is going to bring. On the other side, I think that Crvena zvezda doing very good job so far. I am sure that they will need several more players to create very strong rotation for entire year, but so far I am very satisfied.

How often do you come to Serbia?

I wish that I could visit Serbia more especially because all my friends and family are there, but it will get better. I was home last time in 2010 if I am not wrong, but as I said, future will bring better days about that.

Favorite coach and player that you have chance to work with?

This question is hard to answer. I am very happy because I had a chance to work with many great coaches, but if I should chose some, I would chose coach Dan Dakich, who was my coach while I was attending Bowling Green State University and coach Mark Downey, who was my coach while I was attending Arkansas Tech University. I am truly blessed that I had opportunity to work with them and I am sure I will bring many coaching techniques from them into my carrier.

Which coach is your role model?

Zeljko Obradovic. He is simply a unique. Genious.

Your next steps in the coaching career, where you see yourself in two or three years?

At the end of this summer, I am planning to go back to United States to finish my Masters Education in area of Physical Education and start my carrier as a coach in NCAA basketball. My goal is to become head coach in one of NCAA basketball programs, so I am really looking for this opportunity to learn and grow, not only as a coach, but as a person as well.

Thanks a lot to Dusan Radivojevic who is find time to answer on this question and from my heart i wish him all the best in life and his coaching career.
