“Multi-titled mentor Jerry Yee is resigning as UP WVT coach on Monday after turning the program around in four seasons at the helm.” This was tweeted by Josiah Albelda.
The message was relayed to Josiah Albelda and had shocked a lot of UP Women’s Volleyball Team fans, as well as potential recruits.
In his stint with the Diliman squad, as per Albelda, “Jerry Yee had a 23-33 card in the UAAP, brought the Lady Maroons back to the Final 4 after a long absence, and made UP a destination for recruits.”
As of the moment, according to the tweet: “Yee has no immediate plans for the future, but wishes UP well in its future endeavors. He is also the head coach of Hope Christian School, which became sort of a pipeline for future UP volleyball players.”
“The girls are what’s important,” he says.
The UP Lady Fighting Maroons is currently winless in three games at the Premier Volleyball League. Yee will be leaving the girls midway in the tournament. Assistant Coach Kat de Lara is expected to call the shots for PVL. All eyes will be on UP as they find their new coach.
While several supporters may have called for Yee’s ouster as a coach, many would want for him to be the consultant or recruitment manager of the team.
A major revamp is expected to come after his resignation while it is a welcome news that Nicole Tiamzon and Hans Chuacoco are now part of the UP Integrated School coaching staff for both Boys’ and Girls’ Volleyball teams. Is this going to be a move that will fortify their high school program and pipeline for their college program? Or, is this a separate move all along?
