MANILA, Philippines — Ricky Dandan is out as the coach of the University of the Philippines’ men’s basketball team, a source who requested to remain anonymous, confirmed on Sunday.
It came after the Maroons absorbed their eighth setback in UAAP season 76 last Thursday in the hands of Ateneo, 59-67.

INQUIRER.net tried to reach Dandan through text messages and phone calls but received no response.

Dandan had a 3-33 record in his three-season stay with the Maroons.

    nauna yabang. college ball is about teamwork and motivation. “PUSO” – honest mentoring

  • RedvD

    FINALLY! What took UP so long? Dandan performed a horrible job as coach and their record is proof of that.

    Get a good coach please! Mahiya naman kayo sa UP community

    Can UP hire Norman Black as consultant to train coaches of maroons? Or maybe the serbian coach (sino nga ba yon?) could be hired by the state U as head coach of UP basketball team. His salary can be paid for by UP alumnus specially yung may malaking naipon sa PDAF scam.

  • padrefaura

    no guarantees that the next coach will do better, but with a 3-33 record, coach dandan is not for UP. change is necessary

  • John Sulayman

    Good luck to the next UP coach.

  • orlypbatallones

    Well it is the prerogative of the officials of UPD… it has long been due. But then again, Ricky did his best but he just fell short of the expectations of the UP Community. Good luck to him for his next endeavor..
