It’s now Garcia for Letran

By

LETRAN’S search for a new coach took an unexpected twist yesterday with former PBA coach Caloy Garcia getting the job of leading the Knights in the NCAA next season.

Just days after former Letran coach Larry Albano had appeared headed back to the Knights’ bench, Garcia got his appointment from Letran school officials.

Sources said the United States-based Albano, the mentor who led Letran to its first three-peat feat from 1982-1985, had backed out at the last minute.

Except for a few minor details which include the composition of the coaching staff, Garcia said he is close to agreeing to terms with the school.

“I just came out of a meeting (with school officials) and I signed the job offer sheet,” Garcia confirmed to the Inquirer yesterday just a few hours after Letran guard Kevin Alas had tweeted that the Rain or Shine assistant coach had gotten the job.

    > Thanks for your support and congratulatory messages regarding my
    premature appointment as Head Coach of Letran. Unfortunately, things
    did not go our way -na politika tayo. I was surprised when I read the
    article saying that I was asking for the “moon”, and Letran could not
    meet my demands. In all sincerity I was only asking for whatever they
    were giving Coach Alas. Maybe they were giving him the moon. I was
    merely asking questions regarding the going apartment rate at Letran
    because I have been away for 29 years. They interpreted it as a demand.
    (Baka iba ang english ko sa english nila.) Dahil sa mga tanong ko kaya
    daw na-withdraw yong offer. That for me is such a shallow excuse.There
    was politics involved from the very start-may kanya-kanyang bata sila
    from Fr.Rector down the line na I was willing to accept without
    question. > > Hindi pa tapos ito. There will be a lot of assumption on what happened, but I hope and pray that the truth will > prevail. In my opinion, I have already given Letran the “moon, the stars and the universe”. Arriba Letran! > > Sincerely, > > Larry >
