Former Mahindra deputy replaces Webb as Star coach
Chito Victolero (right) will take over from Jason Webb as head coach of Star.
Paul Lee is not the new face for the Star Hotshots in the upcoming PBA season.
The Purefoods franchise has opted to bring in Chito Victolero to coach the team in place of the embattled Jason Webb.
Victolero previously handled Mahindra as its top deputy before he was replaced by Chris Gavina.
He also coached the Mapua Cardinals in the NCAA.
Victolero will replace Webb after the former player and TV analyst had a tumultuous one-year reign as head coach of Star, missing the semifinals in all three conferences.
However, Webb remains with the team as consultant.
