UP coach Perasol draws criticisms from netizens; opens up about future with Maroons
The UP Fighting Maroons failed to reach the lofty expectations that were set on them — which is to make a return trip to the Finals.
UP did not only waste their chance on banking on their key players, but they were not able to capitalize on their twice-to-beat incentive against UST Growling Tigers.
Because of Maroons’ underwhelming season, the netizens were quick to criticize one man from UP — which is none other head coach Bo Perasol.
These fans just scrutinized Coach Bo’s inability to form a cohesive unit despite boasting a talent-ladden roster, and all of them are asking Perasol to step down as UP’s main tactician.
I really don’t understand how people (and even the commentators) can watch basketball and confidently say that Bo Perasol is a good coach. Are we not watching the same game??? He’s really letting a UAAP all-star caliber team lose games. He’s not coaching shit.

Maaaaaan, akala ko si Coach Tab lang ang UAAP coach who can map out strategies to limit Juan GDL. Boy was I wrong. Bo Perasol is also a coach equally equipped to stop Juan GDL.

honestly, i dont think Bo is fit to coach this team anymore. no discrediting what he’s done in the past, but that final play really just put the nail in the coffin for me. no timeouts rin when guys were down, pero baka ako lang yun.

I think (no offense) Coach Bo should go. UP got one of the strongest roster but wat we all saw was a team showing ‘individual talent’ all thru out the season. No hardcore defense, no chasedown & even the team chem is still questionable even after playing 2 seasons.

Interestingly, even Coach Bo himself wants to take a break first, but his fate with UP is still up to the management.
“For me, kung tatanungin mo ako, gusto ko na lang magpahinga at manood eh,” he said.
“It’s something that I have to talk with the UP administration and management.”
Regardless, Perasol thinks that the program itself is solid enough to withstand any changes in the team.
“But the most important aspect of that is that we are in a direction that is progressing. It doesn’t matter who is going to lead, whether I’m going to be here or not.”
