Pascua back with FEU, replaces Delos Santos as Lady Tams coach
MANILA, Philippines - George Pascua will be making a return to his alma mater Far Eastern University, as he is set to replace Shaq Delos Santos as head coach of the Lady Tamaraws in Season 80.
The development was revealed by the school’s athletics director Mark Molina on Sunday, June 4.
“George Pascua will be the new head coach of the FEU Women’s Volleyball Team,” Molina said in an interview.
Pascua, who is the main shot caller of Cignal in the Philippine SuperLiga, also played for FEU and last served as the head coach of the men’s volleyball squad.
Thankful to Shaq for 4 years as Lady Tams coach. True professional and loyal Tamaraw. He will always be part of FEU volleyball family.— Mark Molina (@marqmolina) June 4, 2017
“Thankful to Shaq for 4 years as Lady Tams coach,” Molina tweeted shortly after the news broke out. “True professional and loyal Tamaraw.”
“He will always be part of FEU volleyball family.”
Pascua will be leading a Lady Tamaraws core bannered by Bernadeth Pons and Toni Rose Basas, together with Jerrili Malabanan, Jeanette Villareal, Gel Cayuna, and Kyle Negrito, among others.
