He underwent bypass surgery two years ago but that didn’t stop him from doing what he loves and going back to coaching.
Pamilar, a proven winner on different levels, returned at the helm as mentor of the Tacloban Fighting Warays in the PVL and San Beda Red Spikers in the NCAA.
He also coached the De La Salle University Green Archers and the Letran Lady Knights.
