    Two-year coach Frankie Lim leaves Perpetual Help Altas

    Sep 16, 2020

    FRANKIE Lim has bid Perpetual goodbye, ending his two-year run with the Las Pinas school.

    The 60-year-old mentor confirmed to Spin.ph that he has indeed left the Altas following a tumultuous past few months due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

    "That's true," Lim said on Wednesday.

    "All the contracts of my assistant coaches were not renewed. My contract was suspended starting July," he said.

    Lim, a four-time NCAA champion coach, has been the chief tactician of Perpetual since 2018, guiding the squad to a Final Four appearance behind Prince Eze, who won the NCAA Season 94 MVP.
