"Coaching, for sure I'm not gonna coach UST but I'm willing to help in any way na kaya kong maitulong." --- Alfrancis Chua.
Do not expect to see Alfrancis Chua coaching in UST anytime soon.
Actually, don't expect to see him coaching there ever.
"Magco-coach ulit? Again uulitin ko, dito nga sa PBA hindi na tayo nagco-coach ulit eh," Chua said Wednesday when asked about the vacant position with the Growling Tigers after the departure of the embattled Boy Sablan a couple of weeks back.
"Mahirap mag-coach eh kasi dalawa lang yan di ba. Isang tinanggal tsaka isang tatanggalin," he added with a few laughs.
While he can afford to laugh at the situation, Chua admits that UST's decline in basketball over the past couple of seasons hurts him as a former player for the school.
But despite the Tigers facing uncertainty again, Chua believes that brigther days are ahead for the team.
And it appears that he wouldn't mind if old pal Pido Jarencio wound up returning to Espana to coach the Growling Tigers.
"Ako, sakin mabilis makakahanap ng coach ang UST. Lahat sinasabi si Pido, kasi siya yung nagbigay nung victory, yung huling championship sa UST," Chua said.
"Kung titignan mo yung UST team mukhang may laman naman eh. The way they play. tinitignan ko mukhang may laman naman ano. Siguro konting twist na lang o-okay na yun," he added.
While he's not about to call plays on the sidelines for UST, Chua, the San Miguel Corporation Sports Director, says that he's more than willing to help his former school with everything else.
"Coaching, for sure I'm not gonna coach UST but I'm willing to help in any way na kaya kong maitulong," he said.
