There was no other sports figure that bogged the headlines this holiday season than Aldin Ayo.

Tiebreaker Times first reported the two-time collegiate mentor’s exit from De La Salle University last December 27, 2017 and followed it up with a story about Louie Gonzalez’s designation as the new coach of the school’s fabled Green Archers squad.

After all the stories released by the various media outlets, La Salle has finally broken its silence on the matter courtesy of a statement from the Office of Sports Development’s Twitter account.

“De La Salle University announces the appointment of Jose Luis Gonzalez III as head coach of the Men’s Basketball Team effective January 1, 2018.

“Prior to his post, coach Louie Gonzalez was the Green Archers’ deputy head coach for two years. He also served as an assistant coach of Letran and Far Eastern University as well as GlobalPort and KIA in the Philippine Basketball Association,” the statement read.

In addition, the institution remains grateful to the service rendered by Ayo.Philippine Sports News - Tiebreaker Times La Salle formally appoints Louie Gonzalez as Green Archers head coach Basketball DLSU News UAAP  UAAP Season 81 Men's Basketball UAAP Season 81 Louie Gonzalez DLSU Men's Basketball Aldin Ayo

“DLSU extends its deep appreciation to former head coach Aldin Ayo for his two years of dedicated service to the team.”

Gonzalez has big shoes to fill as his now predecessor won one UAAP championship and earned a win-loss record of 30 wins and just 5 losses in two seasons for the Green Archers.

Nevertheless, the former PBA assistant coach is said to be the main architect of Ayo’s Mayhem system. Their partnership has gone a long way ever since the duo’s Letran days when Gonzalez was an assistant coach while Ayo was a player.

Assisting Gonzalez will be Glenn Capacio, team B mentor Anton Altamirano and the returning Siot Tanquingcen.

Meanwhile, reports persist that Ayo is off to University of Santo Tomas alongside deputy McJour Luib.
