La Salle follows in the footsteps of Ateneo with a foreign head coach
De La Salle University will have a second new head coach in as many years.
The Green Archers are poised to secure the services of British Tim Lewis to take over from Louie Gonzalez, according to several sources.
Lewis spent the last few years building up Qatar into a regional contender before being set to take his talents to Taft Avenue.
He replaces Gonzalez who goes one-and-done as head coach after going 8-6 and missing out on the Final Four.
Now in La Salle, Lewis will have Mythical selection Justine Baltazar, team captain Andrei Caracut, and scoring dynamo Aljun Melecio leading the charge.
The 51-year-old is the second new head coach for the Green Archers since Aldin Ayo moved on in 2017.
