Jack Santiago adds Jamike Jarin to UE staff

Carving a new path, newly-minted University of the East head coach Jack Santiago got himself a veteran deputy. 

Santiago has tapped Jamike Jarin as his lead assistant, a school official told Tiebreaker Times.

Jarin, a multi-time UAAP Boys’ Basketball and a one-time NCAA Seniors Basketball champion coach, struggled in his first three years as head coach in the Men’s Division of the UAAP.

During his three-year stay in NU, Jarin could not steer the Bulldogs to the Final Four, accumulating an 11-31 record. His 2-12 campaign in UAAP Season 82 was the worst outing for an NU team since Manny Sy took over the program late 2000s.

Santiago and Jarin will have a tough task ahead of them, looking to end the school’s 11-year Final Four drought.

Santiago and Jarin replaced the duo of the late Bong Tan and Lawrence Chongson.

Last season, the Red Warriors finished with a 4-10 record.
