1. Pending formal announcement by UST management on Januaey 11 on the hiring of Coach Aldin Ayo as new mentor of UST’s Basketball program, one of the good decisions by UST officials accompanying Ayo’s appointment is the ” 6 Year contract” that wikk be guven coach Ayo. With this tenure, a coach can build, rebuild, and make long term planning and vision for the team and not be afraid that he can be axed in the middle of his program. He can recruut a training pool that will also be asdured of tenureship. This will redound to good and qyality player recruitment.
    In fact, no other UST coach had this luxury of a contract sunce time immemorial. The cintract of UST coaches are only renewed on a yearly bssis. Ayo is the first one to enjoy such contract. Any coach with this kind of contract will have no reason to fail. Previous coaches had a hard time planning and recruiting because of uncertainty of tenure that is renewed yearly. Now Ayo will have the benefit of long term planning. Again i hope and pray that this 6 year contract will be able to help Ayo realize a formidable program for Santo Tomas by using the long cintract to its fullest potential. Goodluck and Godspeed to this new chapter in UST Basketball.
