KERBY Raymundo has joined his alma mater Letran as a consultant of the coaching staff headed by Jeff Napa.
Raymundo, who led the Knights to back-to-back NCAA titles in 1998 and 1999, was at Knights during its first match of Season 93.
"Tulong kay coach Jeff," said Raymundo on Tuesday as he confirmed to Spin.ph he has taken a job as Knights consultant.
The 36-year-old Raymundo said he simply could not refuse when Napa invited him to join the coaching staff.
"I'm happy to be here. Alam ko naman na walang Kerby Raymundo kung walang Letran. When coach Jeff called me, I can't say no. Fr. Vic (Calvo, Letran athletic director) also called me. Dito ako nanggaling. It's about giving back. I'm here because I want to help the team," said Raymundo, the 1999 NCAA MVP.
"My job is to help them. 'Yung wisdom sa laro. Matagal na tayong naglaro. Makakatulong ako sa kanila (sa laro) at sa leadership na rin," said Raymundo, a 13-year PBA veteran.
Napa said Raymundo will definitely be a big help for the team as far as giving guidance to the squad.
"Malaking bagay si Kerby kasi 'yung ilang taon niya sa PBA, so 'yung experience niya, how to handle situations, 'yun 'yung mga aspect na tinutulong niya sa akin," said Napa.
"Alam mo naman Kerby Raymundo 'yan, pag pinagusapan 'yung Letran, hindi na para pag-usapan 'yung Kerby Raymundo eh. Malaking tulong para sa amin na nandiyan siya," said Napa.
Letran lost in its first game with Raymundo, bowing to the Mapua Cardinals, but he is confident the Knights will quickly bounce back.
"We did a good job. I believe na-execute namin 'yung dapat gawin expect sa mga lapses nung one minute. They know that. Napag-usapan na namin. We will be better next time," said Raymundo.
