Diaz, who was celebrating his birthday during the announcement, has been calling the shots for FEU since 2016 and led the Tamaraws to a finals appearance in Season 81 only to settle for silver after losing to the National University Bulldogs.

The outgoing FEU tactician, a former Premier Volleyball League (PVL) coach of the defunct Perlas Spikers, led the team to four straight semifinal appearances.

The Tamaraws finished with a bronze medal in Season 85 after losing to finalists University of Santo Tomas Golden Spikers.

Orcullo has been a longtime FEU assistant coach. He was a former head coach of the disbanded Sta. Lucia in the PVL and was part of the coaching staff of the 2017 Philippine men’s volleyball team.
