MANILA, Philippines – Shaq delos Santos will once again call the shots in the UAAP as the new coach of the UP Fighting Maroons.

The UP women’s volleyball team on Monday, August 15, formally welcomed Delos Santos to the squad as he replaces Kenyan tactician Godfrey Okumu.

Okumu stepped down from his post in July after failing to steer the Fighting Maroons to the Final Four in Season 84, where they finished sixth with a 5-9 record.

UP last reached the Final Four in 2016.

“We believe in you coach and can’t wait to see what you have in store for the team,” read the team’s post on Facebook.

The announcement came just a day after Delos Santos guided the Cignal HD Spikers to the bronze medal in the Premier Volleyball League Invitational Conference.

A former national team mentor, Delos Santos last coached in the UAAP for the FEU Lady Tamaraws in 2017. – Rappler.com
