    By Mark Giongco

    8:59 pm | Monday, October 29th, 2012 Share on facebook_likeShare 1MANILA, Philippines – Nash Racela, Talk ‘N Text’s long-time assistant coach, has been officially named as Far Eastern University head coach.

    For weeks, Racela kept his lips sealed amid early reports of his coaching stint with the Tamaraws.

    “FEU Head Coach will be Nash Racela effective November 1,” Anton Montinola, representative of FEU to the UAAP Board said in a text message Monday night.

    Racela succeeded Bert Flores as the Tamaraws’ head coach.

    Flores hinted last month that he might not return as head coach just moments after FEU failed to make the Final Four for the first time since 2007.

    Racela is also the head coach of new team Fruitas Shakers in the PBA D-League

    Fruitas win forfeited for fielding ineligible player

    MANILA, Philippines – PBA Commissioner Chito Salud has nullified Fruitas’ 88-82 win over Cafe France after the Shakers played an ineligible player in their PBA D-League debut last Thursday.

    In an article posted Tuesday in the league’s website, Salud also slapped the team with a P25,000 fine for fielding in Joseph Erioubu in the second quarter despite “the lack of documentary requirements to prove that he is a Filipino citizen.”

    “This Office having no record in its file of the submission of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) Order of Recognition, the minimum requirement for foreign-born players like Mr. Erioubu, holds that the said player is ineligible to play in the PBA D-League until such time that he complies with the league’s documentary requirements,” Salud informed Fruitas head coach Nash Racela in his letter stating his decision.

    Erioubu’s mother is a Filipino but having born in Hong Kong, the six-foot-four forward must have an Order of Recognition from the immigration department to be eligible in the D-League.

    The 20-year-old Erioubu, who also plays for Mapua, played for eight minutes and recorded two points on one-of-four shooting from the field.

    Fruitas hopes to put the matter behind it when it battles Cebuana Lhuillier on November 8.

    The Shakers will be favored to win with key cogs from three-time NCAA champion San Beda already available to give them a boost.

    Racela takes over as Tams' mentor
    By Olmin Leyba (The Philippine Star) Updated October 30, 2012 12:00 AM

    MANILA, Philippines - Far Eastern U has appointed Nash Racela as the Tams new coach following the team’s disastrous campaign in the UAAP Season 75 men’s basketball tournament where it missed the Final Four after back-to-back runner-up finishes.

    “FEU head coach will be Nash Racela effective Nov. 1,” FEU’s representative to the UAAP board Anton Montinola told The STAR yesterday.

    Racela, currently an assistant coach with Talk n Text in the Philippine Basketball Association, is set to take over the reins of the team that failed to make it to this year’s UAAP semis despite staying in the Top 3 majority of the double-round elims.

    Montinola said under Racela, the Tams expect to make a huge turnaround in Season 76.

    “Finals or championship next season,” he said when asked about the Tams’ expectations from their new coach, who will replace veteran Bert Flores.

    Racela’s appointment ushers in a coaching revamp for the FEU seniors team after its fifth place finish, with Flores’ deputy Johnny Abarrientos spared from the overhaul.

    UAAP: FEU taps Nash Racela as new head coach
    October 29, 2012 8:08pm

    The Far Eastern University Tamaraws have replaced Bert Flores as their head coach, tapping the services of Nash Racela to take his place.

    Team manager and representative to the UAAP board Anton Montinola confirmed the change to GMA News Online via text message.

    Flores returned for a second stint of duty as Tamaraws head coach in 2011, replacing Glenn Capacio, and in two seasons, compiled a record of 18-10 in the elimination round. In Season 74, FEU stunned second-seeded Adamson University to advance to the Finals, where they were swept by Ateneo. The next year, the Tams lost a playoff against the DLSU Green Archers to finish fifth, outside of the Final Four.

    Racela, his replacement, is an assistant to former Ateneo head coach and current Talk 'N Text Tropang Texters head coach Norman Black in the PBA. The brother of Petron Blaze Boosters mentor Olsen Racela is also head coach of the PBA Developmental League's Fruitas Shakers.

    FEU loses just big men Clarence Foronda and Mark Bringas to graduation, although former MVP RR Garcia is undecided if he will return for his final year of collegiate eligibility. The team may have an able replacement for him in the wings though, as athletics director Mark Molina earlier tweeted out that the team has a written agreement from juniors division star and Baby Tam Jerie Pingoy to stay with Far Eastern in the seniors division. - AMD, GMA News

    Long wait worth it as Nash thrilled to be back in college game
    By Reuben Terrado

    October 29, 2012, 09:00 pm

    It has been more than seven years since Nash Racela held a college head-coaching job at San Beda. Now a more experienced Racela is back in the college game as coach of perennial UAAP contender FEU. Jerome Ascano
    NASH Racela hopes to complete a job he left unfinished seven years ago.

    The year 2005 marked the last time Racela handled a college basketball team, an inexperienced coach at the reins of a rebuilding San Beda Red Lions team in the NCAA. So forgettable was the campaign that Racela was no longer around even before the eliminations could end.

    The man who replaced him, Koy Banal, went on to steer the Red Lions to their first championship in 28 years behind a roster bannered by Nigerian import Sam Ekwe, Pong Escobal, and Yousif Aljamal.

    Now, Racela finds himself back in the college game after he was named the new mentor of the underachieving Far Eastern University Tamaraws in the UAAP, replacing Bert Flores.

    The official appointment of Racela came as a surprise since the school has long held a tradition of naming former players as varsity coaches. He is actually the first non-FEU alumnus to handle the team since – ironically enough - Banal called the shots for the team early in 2000.

    Racela admitted being named FEU coach has yet to sink in when contacted by

    “Siguro para sa akin (talaga), it was worth the wait,” said Racela. “It’s nice to be back in college basketball.”

    The FEU coaching job capped a blissful two weeks for Racela, who held a slew of assistant coaching jobs before the breaks started coming his way.

    Just last week, he was formally introduced as head coach of the Fruitas Shakers in the PBA D-League. Before that, he was interim coach of Talk ‘N Text for at least two games as the team waited for Norman Black to wrap up unfinished business for the Ateneo Blue Eagles in the UAAP.

    It was a break Racela has long been itching for.

    “I’ve been wanting to coach a team and it never came a reality,” admitted the soft-spoken younger brother of Petron head coach Olsen Racela. “I’m thankful to God na eto na ‘yung hinintay ko ng matagal. All of a sudden, I have two teams (to coach).”

    Racela declined to speculate on the composition of next year’s FEU team after it missed the Final Four this season despite a winning 9-5 record. But he believes the Tamaraws will remain formidable as he looks forward to putting his imprint on one of the major teams in college basketball.

    “I’m excited to lead the team," he said. "Alam naman natin na every year, FEU has always been a contender in the UAAP.”

    I think the hiring of Racela as coach of FEU is a prelude to the looming support of MVP since FEU is the alma mater of his dear father. Will this be the start of another FEU dynasty just like during the time of Johnny Abarientos and Vic Pablo?
