Derrick Pumaren has returned to the La Salle bench after being named the team's new coach for the upcoming University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) season.
The Green Archers announced on Tuesday that Pumaren will take over the spot vacated by Gian Nazario as their chief tactician.
Nazario, however, will remain with Pumaren's coaching staff as an assistant coach.
Pumaren first coached La Salle from 1986-1991, winning back-to-back titles in 1989 and 1990.
He recently coached the University of the East, his alma mater, in the UAAP from 2014-2017.
Pumaren is expected to make his second debut as the Green Archers' coach in the PBA D-League, where they are confirmed to be participating in the upcoming Aspirants Cup.
