One of the catalysts for the sudden boom of local volleyball may be leaving the country for good.
Creamline head coach Tai Bundit has expressed his desire to return to Thailand and leave his current post.
Bundit, who just led the Cool Smashers to a second title, says that the time away from his family has taken its toll.
His son just turned 13 and will begin high school in the following academic year. His twin eight-year-old daughters have also spent most of their lives without Bundit at home.
He will fly to Thailand on December 14 for his father-in-law’s death anniversary and talk to his family.
Among the many topics of discussion will be the financial implications.
“He’ll talk to his wife because he earns a lot of money here,” said Tony Boy Liao, who brought Bundit over to the Philippines and remains one of the Thai mentor’s closest confidants.
Bundit famously led the Ateneo de Manila University Lady Eagles to back-to-back UAAP titles in Season 76 and Season 77, the program’s only championships.
Sources reveal that Bundit is being eyed for several coaching posts in the UAAP Seniors and Juniors division. Whether he gets another UAAP job will factor in to his decision in the end.
“May ilang teams na kumukuha sa kanya dito. ‘Yun din talaga ang isa sa hinihintay niya,” said the source.
