Chot Reyes is Back


According to Fox Sports Asia, for the third time in a decade, Chot Reyes is back at the helm as Gilas Pilipinas coach.

In a stunning move that caught many by surprise on Tuesday morning, Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas executive director Renauld “Sonny” Barrios named Reyes, 53, as Gilas Pilipinas 5.0 mentor, taking over the coaching reins from American-Kiwi mentor Tab Baldwin who will serve as the team consultant.

“We want to go back to our winning formula,” stressed Barrios, referring to the tandem of Reyes and Baldwin, who helped Gilas cop the silver medal in the 2013 FIBA-Asia Championships and, in the process, clinch a ticket to the 2014 Basketball World Cup in Spain where the Filipinos booked the country’s first victory in 40 years.
