Jarencio vouches for Growling Tigers amid controversy
The UST Growling Tigers are getting support from former head coach Pido Jarencio as the team deals with a sensitive controversy.

At least one man is on the side of the currently embattled UST Growling Tigers.

And that man is former beloved head coach Pido Jarencio.

In one of his rare tweets, the 2006 UAAP champion coach said that it's "sad to hear negative rumors" to his former players.

He also vouched for his former team and said that the rumors are "not true."

Current head coach Bong dela Cruz and the rest of the Growling Tigers have been subject of rumored maltreatment and game-fixing.
