Not even a month after the dust settled on the 2017 Chooks-to-Grand Philippine Superliga Grand Prix, several teams have already shaken up their coaching ranks.

Serbian mentor Moro Branislav left his post with Foton and inked a reported two-year deal with the Cocolife Asset Managers.

Branislav, who led the Tornadoes to a Grand Prix title in 2016, takes over for an Asset Managers squad his former Foton squad took out in the battle for bronze.

Cocolife, a team that debuted in the 2017 Invitational Cup, looks to make a leap into contender status in 2018 and begins their rebuild with Branislav’s signing.

The Asset Managers finished the Grand Prix at fourth place after falling to eventual champions F2 Logistics Cargo Movers in the semifinals.

Foton, on the other hand, signed former Pocari Sweat head coach Rommel Abella.

The Tornadoes had a down 2017 after two consecutive years of bountiful hauls, owing to several injuries and departure of key players..

They are hoping that Abella, who steered Pocari Sweat to three straight Premier Volleyball League titles, can right the ship.
