MANILA, Philippines—University of the Philippines on Friday stressed that Bo Perasol remains as the head coach of its men’s basketball program.

The school made the announcement after several reports said that Perasol has resigned from his post.

“We are formally refuting news articles that came out with regards to Coach Bo’s coaching status in UP MBT.”


Perasol, who took the head coaching position in 2016, led UP to the UAAP Season 80 finals where the Fighting Maroons lost to Ateneo in two games in 2018.

Diaz added that the UP community mourns with Perasol after the death of his mother due to COVID-19.

“Lastly, the entire UP community (officials, varsity program, UP MBT, and the alumni) is bereaving with Coach Bo on the recent passing of his mother due to Covid-19,” said Diaz.
