PERPETUAL Help will have a three-man coaching staff composed of school owner Antonio Tamayo, lawyer Barry Neil Tobias and former player Nic Omorogbe to handle its men's basketball team in the NCAA.
Jeff Tamayo, the Las Pinas-based school's athletic director and representative to the NCAA Management Committee, said the three were appointed on Tuesday and will start working with the team immediately as they take over from multi-titled coach Aric del Rosario and son Lester.
"They will start preparation as soon as possible," said Tamayo.
Antonio Tamayo has played and was in fact a teammate of del Rosario for the Santo Tomas Cubs and a former president of the soft tennis association before focusing on running the school.
Tobias, for his part, studied at La Salle but finished his law studies at Perpetual Help while Omorogbe played for the Altas side he helped lead to the Final Four in 2012 and 2013.
Sources said Omorogbe may likely be the lead coach but won't be appointed to the position to avoid problems over a court ruling that bars foreign coaches from
The recent appointment left Letran as the only remaining school without a head coach after its former mentor, Aldin Ayo, left to coach for the La Salle Archers in the UAAP.
There were reports that Kerby Raymundo, who helped the school win the 1998 and 1999 NCAA championships, is being eyed to take over from Ayo but the Knights have not made an official announcement.
