Monteverde departs as NU coach
National University (NU) parted ways with coach Goldwin Monteverde on Sunday night as it aims to rebuild its programs, including the successful juniors’ team that just won back-to-back UAAP crowns.
Monteverde was hired late last year to replace Jamike Jarin as the head coach of the seniors’ team that last won a championship in 2014, a move seen as a way to ensure a seamless transition for their standouts in the juniors division to the collegiate ranks.
But just eight months later and without even coaching a single game for the Bulldogs, Monteverde was shown the door after his resignation was accepted by the school’s management, the Inquirer learned.
Monteverde, who a source said does not have a contract with NU, was also relieved of his duties for the powerhouse high school team.
“He has already resigned and it was only accepted this weekend,” said a source close to Monteverde.
