SBP still searching for next Gilas coach


The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas has yet to name a full-time coach for Gilas Pilipinas, a month before the national team return to action next month in the first window of the FIBA Asia Cup qualifiers.

The search will be in full swing after the February window, where the country will take on Southeast Asian neighbors Indonesia and Thailand.

SBP President Al Panlilion said that until now, they are receiving applications from coaches here and abroad.

PBA’s winningest coach Tim Cone called the shots for Gilas in the recent Southeast Asian Games, where the nationals dominated its way to the gold medal. Yeng Guiao, meanwhile, resigned after a lackluster performance of Gilas in the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup.
