GOLDWIN Monteverde is in the running for the vacant coaching position at University of the East.
Sources told SPIN.ph UE is interested in hiring the concurrent head coach National University and Chiang Kai Shek College high school teams due to his impressive track record.
Monteverde led CKSC to numerous titles in the Fil-Chinese high school basketball leagues as well as to the NBTC national finals. Recently, Monteverde also led the Blue Dragons in the Metro Manila Basketball League where the team gained a slot in the NBTC national tournament.
However, any transfer will have to be made after the UAAP juniors season since Monteverde and the NU Bullpups are in the middle of their campaign.
Also being mentioned in the vacant UE coaching position are PBA legends and UE greats Allan Caidic and Jerry Codinera, who led the Red Warriors to their last UAAP title in 1985, and former PBA coach Koy Banal.
The Red Warriors, who has not reached the Final Four since 2009, were left without a head coach after Derrick Pumaren was relieved of his position at the end of the last season.
