New Tigers’ head coach Aldin Ayo tapped four familiar faces, two of them from his La Salle champion team, to assist him on the bench.
Ayo introduced Bonnie Garcia, McJour Luib, Kristoffer Co, and Rene Baena in a press briefing at UST Thursday.
Garcia is a former head coach of the Sta. Lucia Realtors in the Pilipinas Commercial Basketball League (PCBL) last 2016, while Luib and Co were part of Ayo’s previous coaching staff in De La Salle University. Baena was an assistant coach of the Adamson Baby Falcons last Season 79.
The 24-year-old Luib played for Ayo at Colegio de San Juan de Letran in 2015 before he was joined his coach in La Salle.
Ayo said he was still completing his coaching staff since some of the eyed members still had prior commitments.
“Once makumpleto yung coaching staff saka namin titingnan kung ano yung roles [nila],” Ayo told the Varsitarian.
Co, who was with Ayo since Season 79, said he would most likely be assigned to scout the other teams and edit game film for the team’s use.
