Will Coach Louie Alas accept coaching offers from UST or NU?


Now that the services of Louie Alas is available, will he be open to coach in the collegiate level once more?

“Wala pa lahat sa isip ko yan. Pero salamat sa lahat, ang dami ngang nagsasabi sa social media na make it happen, coach Louie,” the 56-year old said on

The rumors of Alas applying for the vacant coaching at University of Santo Tomas and National University began to resurface on social media following his sudden exit as Phoenix mentor.

Alas had an outstanding resume in college basketball, as he led the Letran Knights in numerous Final Four appearances until 2012 and two NCAA championships in 2003 and 2005.

As much as Coach Louie is honored to receive an offer from both UST and NU, he preferred to honor his obligations with the Phoenix and will ponder on his next step.

Hindi ko pa muna iniisip yan. I want to finish this (Phoenix) first. Tatapusin ko muna ito,” he said. “Saka na lang ako mag-i-isip kung meron bang windows of opportunity diyan or whatever.”
