Jimmy Alapag will have a familiar face in his coaching staff as Tanduay Alab Pilipinas welcomes PBA legend Danny Seigle as a team consultant.
The 41-year-old forward was announced as the newest addition to the Philippine-based ASEAN Basketball League squad as the eight-time PBA champion embarks on a new challenge in his career.
Seigle last played for TNT KaTropa, where he first paired up with Alapag since arriving to the team in 2013. He also had stints in Barako Bull and in his longtime home San Miguel in his 18-year PBA career.
Joining Seigle in Alapag’s coaching staff are former head coach Mcc Cuan and conditioning coach Chappy Callanta.
Alab has also finalized its roster for the 2017-2018 ABL season, with reigning ABL Local MVP Bobby Ray Parks and powerhouse import Ivan Johnson leading the fight.
Also in the roster are veterans Dondon Hontiveros, Josh Urbiztondo, Rico Maierhofer, and Robby Celiz, Fil-Am swingman Lawrence Domingo, new recruits Pamboy Raymundo, Oping Sumalinog, Pao Javelona, and JR Alabanza, and reinforcement Reggie Okosa.
Alab opens its campaign on November 19 against defending champion Hong Kong Eastern Sports Club at Mall of Asia Arena.
