Oliver Almadro resigns from Choco Mucho, focuses on Ateneo

Choco Mucho is set to begin a new era on Tuesday.

When the Flying Titans take on United Auctioneers Inc-Army at 2:00 PM, head coach Oliver Almadro will not be around as Rebisco has accepted his resignation.

On Monday evening, he posted a statement, apologizing for his abrupt decision to leave the team as they are currently competing in the 2022 PVL Reinforced Conference, holding a 2-3 record.

“Being the head coach of Choco Mucho Flying Titans has become one of the greatest blessings and opportunities that I have received,” said Almadro, who has been the head coach of Choco Mucho since its inception in 2019.

“Though this may be abrupt and with heavy hearts, I have requested the Rebisco Management, that I will be allowed to step down as head coach of the Choco Mucho Flying Titans. This is to allow me to focus on my duties and responsibilities as head coach of the Ateneo Women’s Volleyball Team.”

Rebisco, who is also a booster of the Ateneo Volleyball program, formalized his resignation on Tuesday.

“This decision was reached for him to focus his efforts in developing the Ateneo Women’s Volleyball Program and will take effect immediately,” Rebisco’s statement read.

Edjet Mabbayad will serve as the interim head coach of the team.

In his six-conference stay with Choco Mucho, Almadro compiled a 24-27 record, including a couple of fourth-place finishes.PVL-ASG-Blue-vs.-Red-Oliver-Almadro-4012 Oliver Almadro resigns from Choco Mucho, focuses on Ateneo ADMU News PVL Volleyball  - philippine sports news

“We thank Coach 0 for the invaluable contribution he brought to our team since it was formed in 2019. Coach 0 has embodied what Titan Pride is all about — the work ethic and passion for the sport. Rebisco Management has nothing but admiration for Coach 0, and we are sincerely grateful for his trust, faith, and courage throughout his tenure. To his family and wife Jen, maraming salamat for all the support and dedication through these years,” continued Rebisco’s statement.

Almadro is grateful for the time he spent with the Flying Titans.

“I would like to thank Sir Jonathan Ng, Rolly Delfino, Alan Acero, Atty. Lily Kho Gruba, Aileen Rodas, Lizanne Co, and the whole Rebisco Management for entrusting me with this team. I would also like to thank my players and coaching staff who became part of my growth as a professional volleyball coach,” he said.

“I am grateful to the fans who supported and prayed for me in my coaching stint with the Flying Titans. Last but not the least, I would like to thank my family who is always with me in my journey no matter what.”
