    George Pascua as PLDT coach

    The team made the signing official on Friday after Spin.ph broke the news.

    "Happy and excited kasi napunta ako sa team na isa sa mga pioneer na teams na sa volleyball," he said. "Masaya din ako na vina-value nila yung players. Yung pagkuha nila sa akin, very unexpected. Hindi ko inexpect kasi marami silang ina-eye na head coach. Kinausap nila ako sa kanilang mga plans at nagkaroon kami ng collaborations. Tapos tinawagan nila ako na ako na daw napili nila."

    Pascua succeeds multi-titled mentor Roger Gorayeb at the helm and will be tasked to steer PLDT to better heights this upcoming Premier Volleyball League (PVL) season.

    The current Far Eastern University coach and national women's team assistant brings a wealth of experience behind him being a three-time champion in Philippine Super Liga for Petron and Cignal.
