Michael Saguiguit beats out Jerry Codiñera and Stevenson Tiu for the Perpetual Altas' head coaching post

Longtime deputy Michael Saguiguit will call the shots for the Perpetual Help Altas as the team promoted him for NCAA Season 96.

Saguiguit, who served as assistant to former Altas head coaches Nosa Omorogbe and Frankie Lim, beat out Jerry Codiñera and Stevenson Tiu for the head coaching post.

“I will do my best to uplift our university and our color, maroon and gold, to the next level of competence,” Saguiguit said.

Saguiguit, who coached the Parañaque Patriots in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League, said he is determined to bring Perpetual back to the Final Four after the Altas finished at 7th place in Season 95.

He will have mainstays Kim Aurin, Ben Adamos, Jielo Razon, and Kit Jimenez, among others, at his disposal. – Rappler.com
