After coaching first game, Ildefonso says he has no plans of becoming head coach

first_imgIt’s hard for someone of Ildefonso’s caliber to feel any pressure inside a basketball court, but that happened on Sunday when he subbed in for the suspended Jamike Jarin as National University’s head coach in the UAAP Season 80 men’s basketball tournament.And although NU took a 91-83 victory against University of Santo Tomas, Ildefonso knew coaching is far from him.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smog“I really don’t have any ambition to be a head coach,” said Ildefonso in Filipino at Filoil Flying V Centre. “Honestly, coaching’s not for me.”“Coach Jamike knows it but he told me that I wasn’t exactly geared for that path. But let’s see. Only God knows where I’ll end up.” Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award NU trailed, 43-40, at the end of the first half and it was in the first 20 minutes of the game that Ildefonso looked rattled, a far cry from his days as the PBA’s Demolition Man.“During the first half I was really nervous, being a player is really different from being a coach. As a player, I immediately knew what to do with a ball, but as a coach there are so many players that you have to look at. And you also have to look at your opponents.”NU’s captain Matt Salem may have given Ildefonso a “10 over 10” mark in the legendary player’s debut as head coach, the San Miguel icon humbly gave himself a less impressive grade.“To be honest, as a coach I’ll give myself a really low grade,” said Ildefonso.ADVERTISEMENT Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene UE continues resurgence, beats UP Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ LATEST STORIES It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?
