Franz Pumaren is ready to settle some unfinished business with the Adamson University Soaring Falcons.
The five-time UAAP Men’s Basketball champion coach will remain with the team for the next two years.
“Yes, I was renewed for two years, with an option for another two years,” he said.
Last month, rumors swirled that Adamson would not renew Pumaren’s contract. The school’s director for Office for Athletics and Recreation Fr. Aldrin Suan immediately denied the stories.
Also returning with Pumaren are his staff, composed of Jack Santiago, Renren Ritualo, Don Allado, and Tonichi Yturri.
Coming off a heartbreaking third place finish last season, Pumaren is set to begin the team’s practices for Season 82 on Monday, January 14.
“Puro mga bata ang nasa team namin ngayon, but I think we have what it takes naman to compete,” said Pumaren, as the team lost Sean Manganti to graduation.
“As I’ve said before, I’m in here for the long haul.”
