Boyet back as SBC coach

BOYET Fernandez is back as head coach of the San Beda Red Lions.

Fernandez returns to the Lions some two years after he steered the school to back-to-back men’s basketball titles in the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

He was reappointed Sunday night following talks with top sports patron and MVP Group of Companies’ head Manny V. Pangilinan and San Beda rector president Fr. Aloysius Maranan, OSB.

The Red Lions took home titles in 2013 and 2014 when Fernandez took over  from Ronnie Magsanoc in 2013.

“We want him (Fernandez) from the start,” said San Beda’s board representative Jose Mari Lacson, who added that after consulting with the school president (Maranan), Pangilinan confirmed  the appointment of  Fernandez as new Red Lions head coach,

Fernandez, who is coming off a coaching stint with Pangilinan’s NLEX team in the PBA, takes over the position Jamike Jarin left last week.

Jarin is set to coach the National University Bulldogs in the UAAP.

Fernandez will also handle the Cignal-San Beda squad participating in the Philippine Basketball Association D-League early next year.
