College of Saint Benilde named former pro player Tyrone Tang as its new seniors basketball coach with an eye of making the Final Four in the National Collegiate Athletic Association after years of failed attempts.
Tang, 32, took his first job as a head coach after his successes as a player with championships in high school with Xavier, in the university Athletic Association of the Philippines with La Salle, the defunct Philippine Basketball League with Welcoat and the Philippine Basketball Association with Rain or Shine.
“It has been approved, TY Tang will coach the Saint Benilde Blazers,” said a St. Benilde insider.
He also compiled a 22-50 slate coaching Saint Benilde, which finished 10th and dead last this season with a 1-17 mark.
Velasco’s best finish as coach in his four years with the Blazers came three years ago when they finished fifth with an 11-7 (win-loss) record.
