MPBL Update: Ex-Ginebra star JV Gayoso takes over head coaching post of Rizal Crusaders

James hits dramatic buzzer-beating three as CSKA edge Zalgiris 85-82

FORMER Barangay Ginebra star and resident MPBL analyst JV Gayoso has been appointed as the new head coach of the Rizal Crusaders-Xentro Mall in the coming season of the fastest growing regional amateur basketball league.

Team manager Jonathan Banal confirmed the news to FOX Sports Philippines in an online message.

“We’ve appointed JV Gayoso as our coach while Ralph Rivera will serve as consultant,” wrote Banal.

Also in the team are Dodot Jaworski, son of the Living Legend Robert Jaworski, and former Muntinlupa Cagers assistant coach Al Vergara.

This means that Gayoso will not be working anymore with the MPBL TV panel. His former fellow Ginebra player, Leo Isaac, is expected to come in and become a new member of the coverage group, according to league commissioner Kenneth Duremdes.
