Amid several reports of University of Santo Tomas’ supposed hiring of Aldin Ayo, one former mentor couldn’t hide his displeasure over the move.
Pido Jarencio, who guided the Growling Tigers to its last UAAP title in 2006, voiced his opinion in an apparent jab at the school for tabbing an “outsider” for the head coach post.
“No delicadesa, sino ang may pakana (No propriety whatsoever, who’s at fault)?”

Jarencio, who is now the head coach of Globalport in the PBA, has expressed almost yearly his desire return to UST after leaving the school in 2013 when they lost to La Salle in the UAAP Finals.
Ayo, who is the former head coach of Letran before jumping ship to La Salle, said at the end of the basketball tournament of Season 80 that he has “lots of friends” who are priests in UST.
It’s worth noting that Ayo graduated with a Philosophy degree from Letran, UST’s sister school under the Dominican order.
