NATIONAL University Bullpups operations head Edster Sy said coach Goldwin Monteverde is staying with the squad amid reports he has been appointed coach of the University of the East Warriors.
Sy told Spin.ph said Monteverde denied reports he is moving to UE and reaffirmed his commitment to the team.
“We met Thursday evening. Friday, we had NU Bullpups team lunch. Kasama namin Goldwin and he denies the said stories that are coming out,” said Sy.
Sy also said Monteverde committed to the three-year program that began when he accepted the role as NU head coach last season.
Sy added Monteverde already has an eight-year partnership with the current management team of NU which was also responsible for the title runs of Chiang Kai Shek College in the NBTC and Fil-Chinese leagues.
The reports came as NU is in deep preparations for its postseason as the Bullpups will face University of Sto. Tomas for the right to face Ateneo in the UAAP Season 80 finals.
NU will have a twice-to-beat advantage in the said series against UST.
“We are preparing for our playoff run. Wag naman magkaroon ng ganitong issues now,” said Sy.
