CHOT Reyes is making a coaching comeback with TnT Tropang Giga.
PBA chairman and TnT governor Ricky Vargas made the announcement Saturday in what had so far been the biggest off-season move made by the proud telecommunication franchise.
"It's like a homecoming for Chot. He is a coach that gave us four championships. We look forward to a successful relationship with coach Chot," said Vargas in a statement.
Reyes taking over the coaching job of the team meant the Tropang Giga is letting go of active consultant Mark Dickel, while previous head mentor Bong Ravena will serve as one of TnT's deputies.
Despite the coaching change, team manager Gabby Cui said TnT retains the rest of its coaching staff also made of Sandy Arespacochaga, Yuri Escueta, Alton Lister, and Josh Reyes.
"Yes, he will work with the existing staff," said Cui.
"We would like to thanks TnT Tropang Giga active consultant Mark Dickel for all that he has done for the team," said Vargas. "He brought us to the PBA Finals twice in the two years that he was onboard. We wish him well as he moves on to new endeavors."
