The two-time PBA Most Valuable Player and winner of multiple PBA championship trophies is set to join the National University coaching staff this year.
Danny Ildefonso was San Miguel’s first overall pick back in 1998 and helped the team to snag eight championship rings.
Danny I isn’t a newbie to National University Bulldogs basketball squad, this is where he played his collegiate years.
“The face of NU for so many years, the legendary Danny Ildefonso, will be joining our coaching staff,” said Jamike Jarin, the newly installed head coach for NU this year.
Another big-man who will join Ildefonso in NU’s coaching staff is former MBA (Metropolitan Basketball Association) MVP John Ferriols. Ferriols led the Negros Slashers to several MBA Finals appearances and won one title during the league’s final season.
With Ildefonso and Ferriols directing from the Bulldog’s bench, banging and scoring inside the paint is expected.
