Post-playing and coaching career
After retirement, La Grotteria agreed to stay at Bassano Virtus in a non-playing role as a technical area coordinator. He then also served as assistant coach on a couple different stints before leaving the club in February 2017 to become Mario Petrone's assistant at Catania. He left the club just a few weeks later, on 8 March 2017, following Petrone's resignations.
