As head coach:
Dušan "Duda" Ivković (Serbian Cyrillic: Душан "Дуда" Ивковић; born October 29, 1943) is a Serbian professional basketball coach who currently serves as head coach for Anadolu Efes of the Turkish Basketball League. He served as head coach of the Serbian national basketball team from 2008 to 2013 and Yugoslavian national basketball team from 1987 (Serbia and Montenegro competed under the name FR Yugoslavia following the breakup of Yugoslavia) to 1995. He is also a former professional basketball player and current president of the Serbian club BKK Radnički. In 2008, he was named one of the 50 Greatest Euroleague Contributors.
In 1987, he succeeded Krešimir Ćosić as head coach of Yugoslavian national basketball team and held the post until the breakup of Yugoslavia in 1991. Ivković then assumed the head coaching position of Serbia and Montenegro, which competed under the name FR Yugoslavia. He guided the team to a gold medal at EuroBasket 1995, in the country's first official appearance since UN lifted sanctions against FR Yugoslavia. Following EuroBasket, Željko Obradović took over as head coach, while Ivković assumed the role of team manager. Both Obradović and Ivković remained in their posts until jointly resigning in November 2000, following a 6th place finish in the 2000 Olympic Games.
Dušan Ivković's elder brother Slobodan "Piva" Ivković, was also a famous basketball player and coach. Ivković is related to the famous Serbian scientist Nikola Tesla. Ivković's maternal grandmother, Olga Mandić, and Tesla's mother, Đuka Mandić, were first cousins. Coincidentally, Tesla died the same year that Ivković was born.
Ivković is a record holding pigeon racer.
