Dušan "Duda" Ivković (Serbian Cyrillic: Душан "Дуда" Ивковић; born 29 October 1943) is a Serbian retired professional basketball player and coach. He served as head coach of the senior Serbian national basketball team from 2008 to 2013, and of the senior 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 the current president of the Serbian club BKK Radnički.
Club coaching career
Ivković has coached twelve basketbal clubs in his career. These were: Partizan, Aris, Radnički Belgrade, Šibenka, Vojvodina, PAOK, Panionios, Olympiacos, AEK, CSKA Moscow, Dynamo Moscow and Anadolu Efes.
On July 1, 2016, Ivković officially retired from professional coaching.
National team coaching
Four years later, barely three weeks after assisting Krešimir Ćosić at EuroBasket 1987, Ivković got to coach Yugoslavia again at the Universiade, this time at home in Zagreb. The team, featuring now 22-year-old European superstar Petrović, won gold in dominant fashion.
Ivković then assumed the head coaching position of the senior FR Yugoslavia. He guided the team to a gold medal at EuroBasket 1995, in the country's first official appearance since the 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 Summer Olympics.
Ivković is related to the famous Serbian American scientist Nikola Tesla. Ivković's maternal grandmother, Olga Mandić, and Tesla were first cousins . Coincidentally, Tesla died the same year that Ivković was born.
Ivković is a record holding pigeon racer.
