Despite winning the NCAA Season 95 Juniors Basketball crown, San Beda-Taytay head coach Manu Inigo still wants to learn and improve more.
The more the merrier right?
Tuesday morning, the Red Cubs added decorated high school head coach Joe Silva and master recruiter Anton Brodett to their staff.
“Kahit nag-champion kami, lahat ng tulong na puwede na makuha ng mga bata, open kami sa ganun. Kaya nung nalaman namin na available si Coach Joe at Coach Anton, ininvite namin sila sa coaching staff,” said Red Cubs head coach Manu Inigo, who steered San Beda to its 23rd juniors basketball crown.
For Inigo, having Silva on his side is a delight.
Of course, Silva needs no introduction as he steered Ateneo to two UAAP High School Boys’ basketball crowns. He was also the former head coach of University of the East.
“Siyempre, alam naman natin na si Coach Joe madami ng championship experience ‘yan, marami ng liga na higher levels pa ang napag-championan niya. Ako naman, being a young coach, parang open naman ako na mag-improve pa,” shared Inigo, who is just 42 years young.
“‘Yung mga nalalaman ni Coach Joe, maganda kung ma-aabsorb din namin.”
On the other hand, in the last six years, Brodett has been known to be a recruiting genius.
Brodett was part of National University’s championship staff back in UAAP Season 77.
Brodett then went on to be a part of Marvin Bienvenida’s staff in La Salle Green Hills, building the Greenies team that won NCAA Season 93.
He would also be part of Silva’s coaching staff in University of the East before moving to Perpetual last year.
This time around, Anton, who is the son of San Beda legend David, comes back home.
“Si Coach Anton, alam naman natin na napakagaling niya mag-recruit. Iba-ibang schools na napuntahan niya at iba-ibang players na rin na-recruit niya. ‘Yun yung mga players na hindi namin kilala tapos umusbong na lang,” said Inigo about Anton.
“So, isang part pa siyempre Bedan siya at yung dad niya na si David kaya naisip niya na gusto na niyang tumulong sa San Beda ngayon.”
The Red Cubs looks to retain the NCAA crown even after the graduation of Rhayyan Amsali, Yukien Andrada, Justine Sanchez, and Tony Ynot.
