Formerly the head coach of the men’s national team, seasoned tactician Tab Baldwin will be returning to the national program but this time, he will mentor the Gilas Pilipinas Youth, previously known as the Batang Gilas program.

Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas president Al Panlilio announced this Wednesday night, during the unveiling of new logos for both the SBP and the Gilas program.

Baldwin last served as Gilas’ tactician in the 2016 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Manila.

Panlilio, however, clarified that Baldwin will be the “program coach” as Sandy Arespacochaga remains the youth team’s head coach.

Meanwhile, PBA legend Ronnie Magsanoc will be handling the Gilas 3×3 program.

Decorated mentor Jong Uichico will be the director of the SBP Academy -Coaches and Tournaments.

Gilas head coach Yeng Guiao will also be the program head of the men’s team, while Patrick Aquino will also be overseeing the whole program of the women’s team.
