A new dawn is set to begin for the University of the East

Derrick Pumaren has resigned from his post as University of the East Red Warriors head coach, multiple sources have confirmed to Tiebreaker Times.

Pumaren, a UE alumnus, was tapped by his alma mater back in April of 2014, taking over from Boysie Zamar.Philippine Sports News - Tiebreaker Times SOURCES: Derrick Pumaren resigns from UE Basketball News UAAP UE  UE Men's Basketball UAAP Season 80 Men's Basketball UAAP Season 80 Derrick Pumaren Alvin Pasaol

In his four-year stay, he compiled a 21-35 record, never making it to the Final Four.

His best campaign came during his first season with UE, where they finished with a 9-5 record. The Red Warriors fell to eventual champions NU Bulldogs in a knockout game for fourth.

He was the longest-tenured coach in the league prior to this. The title now belongs to La Salle’s Aldin Ayo at one year and 357 days.

His departure will leave a lingering effect for the UE faithful in the upcoming days. According to another source closely monitoring the situation, Alvin Pasaol is pondering leaving UE as well, having developed a son-father relationship with Pumaren. The 21-year-old still has two years of eligibility remaining and is planning to throw his name in the D-League draft.
