Goldwin Monteverde gets UE coaching post
Goldwin Monteverde will be the new head coach for University of the East.
The decorated bench tactician has been appointed as the new chief for the Red Warriors, taking over the post left by coach Derrick Pumaren.
Sources close to the situation confirmed that Monteverde has been introduced to the team Friday morning.
Monteverde, though, will have to wait until the end of the UAAP Season 80 juniors basketball tournament before assuming the role as he is still currently the coach for the NU Bullpups.
Monteverde steered NU to an 11-3 record and the second-seed, giving the Bullpups the a twice-to-beat advantage in the stepladder semifinals.
The multi-titled mentor previously coached Chiang Kai Shek College in various collegiate leagues and also had a stint with the Adamson Baby Falcons.
Monteverde will inherit a UE squad, which went 3-11 this past UAAP Season 80 men’s basketball tournament, led by super scorer Alvin Pasaol and playmaker Philip Manalang.
