NLEX is gearing up for an exciting new chapter as Jong Uichico has been appointed as the team’s head coach for the PBA’s 49th season.

He has previously served as an assistant coach for the Road Warriors, gaining valuable insights and experience with the team.

“NLEX Road Warriors are excited to take this new journey with Coach Jong Uichico,” said Luigi Bautista, NLEX Corporation President and General Manager.

“He brings a wealth of experience to the squad and a clear idea of what it takes to win a championship as the fourth-winningest coach in PBA history.”
