Many people are looking for the right SMB coach. Listed below are a few of the most popular names in the industry. Chot Reyes, Leo Austria, Chris Burgess, and Chris Ross are all excellent candidates. Then there are the coaches who don't make the cut. But they all have a lot of things in common. They all share the same goal - to improve their team's performance.
Vincent "Chot" P. Reyes is a Filipino basketball coach and head coach of the TNT Tropang Giga of the Philippine Basketball Association. A former assistant coach to Larry Bird and John Wooden, Reyes now heads the TNT team. Chot has a background in coaching and plays for both the high school and college levels. Chot's philosophy is that every team must be better than their last one.
Before joining the Gilas, Reyes was a veteran professional in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA). He has coached many teams to multiple championships. He was also the five-time PBA Coach of the Year. In addition to coaching the SMB, Reyes led the national team to win the William Jones Cup, which marked the Philippines' first championship in fourteen years. In 2014, they qualified for the FIBA World Cup.
In 2000, Reyes became the head coach of the Pop Cola Panthers and spent two seasons with the franchise. His team finished third in the 2001 All-Filipino Cup. The franchise was then sold to food conglomerate San Miguel Corporation and renamed the Coca-Cola Tigers. Reyes's team was hampered by injuries but won the PBA All-Filipino Championship in his rookie season. Reyes urged his players to be patient and stay focused.
The San Miguel Beermen head coach continues to add to his resume after winning the PBA Philippine Cup on Friday. In the process, he eclipsed former Toyota head coach Dante Silverio, who held the title for five seasons. Austria also tied Tommy Manotoc's record of six titles with his fifth. If he keeps this pace, he will tie NLEX veteran mentor Yeng Guiao for sixth place in the winningest coaches list. Baby Dalupan is second with fifteen titles, followed by Norman Black and Gilas tactician Cho Reyes.
The San Miguel Beermen have signed Rodney Brondial, a former Adamson Soaring Falcon. Brondial is joining the San Miguel team after turning down a two-year extension with the Alaska Aces. The move brings Brondial back to his old coaching staff, led by Austria. The two men are familiar with each other from their respective seasons with the Adamson Soaring Falcons. The trade also marks the end of the "Death Five" era as Arwind Santos' contract with San Miguel expired.
Having spent 11 years playing basketball professionally in a variety of countries, Chris Burgess is no stranger to the world of coaching. During his playing career, Burgess played for the Utah Utes, making appearances in the NCAA Tournament and the NIT. After graduating from BYU, Burgess returned to his alma mater, serving as an assistant coach under former head coach Rick Majerus. He then left the Utes to join the staff of Mark Pope at Utah Valley.
Burgess's background is vast, from playing in Japan to guiding the Blue Devils to the Elite Eight. He also helped lead Duke to the National Championship game. However, in 1999, Burgess suffered a torn right plantar fascia, which cost him his senior year. Burgess returned to the court and led Utah to a NIT and NCAA Tournament appearance.
The San Miguel Beermen have gotten the series-clinching win over the Phoenix Suns despite Chris Ross missing three key shots in the dying seconds of Game 3 against Phoenix. The SMB coach cites two 'foolish fouls' as his biggest mistakes in the game, which helped the Fuel Masters get to within 2-1 in the series. According to the SMB coach, Ross said he was not thinking about his shot and wasn't aware of the foul when he was called for it.
SMB defeated Dyip 91-81 in the Philippine Cup semifinals, where Dyip had to deal with the absence of their mainstays. Juami Tiongson led the scoring for the SMB in the game with a team-high 21 points. He also poured in 11 points during Terrafirma's fourth-quarter rally. Juami Tiongson had scored 28 points against SMB in their previous meeting.
The loss of USD to BYU is not the first setback for a team led by a former SMB coach. Last year, the Toreros were 6-3 in the West Coast Conference. Head coach Chris McGillis proclaimed the Toreros would win five of their final six games. Unfortunately for USD, the Toreros went on to lose six of their final seven games. The search for Scholl's replacement is expected to be national. In early speculation, candidates with Southern California ties have emerged.
Founders who want to launch a product or company can benefit from the help of an experienced entrepreneur.

After a successful run at LSU, Chot Davis, SMB coach, has been named the head coach of Ole Miss. He led the Rebels to the NCAA Tournament last season, but lost to Oklahoma in the first round. While Davis is a strong coach, many critics question his ability to motivate the players. While his recent success at Ole Miss should give him new opportunities, it also has his critics.
Before joining the LSU strength and conditioning staff, Davis was an assistant football coach at North Shore High School in Galena Park, Texas. He coached Baltimore Ravens DT and former Longhorns All-American Cory Redding. A former LSU nose guard, Davis earned second-team All-SEC honors as a senior. He lettered four seasons at the school and finished with one sack and one fumble recovery.
In the aftermath of the Quinn firing, the Wolfpack have hired a new head coach. The Athletic Department of the SMB school chose Davis. While he will not coach football at SMB, he will continue to teach AP United States History, Leadership Studies, and Government classes. This is his second season as a coach with the Wolfpack. In the meantime, he is a physical education teacher at Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis.
In the spring of 2007, Dr. Tom Davis announced his retirement from the Division I coaching ranks. Davis' son, Keno, has coached under his father for the past four seasons.

Davis will be hired on a five-year contract with a rollover clause.
