UST HEAD COACH ALDIN AYO RESIGNS AMID BICOL ‘BUBBLE’ CONTROVERSY
University of Santo Tomas (UST) head coach Aldin Ayo announced his resignation on Friday amid the ongoing investigation into the Bicol “bubble” controversy that allegedly violated government quarantine protocols.
The UAAP and NCAA champion coach also apologized to those who have been affected by their activity.
Ayo also thanked the UST community for their continued support to the embattled men’s basketball team.
A panel composed of some government agencies and the UAAP Board is at the height of its investigation on the alleged “bubble” in Sorsogon, where Ayo brought his players in his home province in June to train.
The said locked-up training led to the controversial transfer of former team captain CJ Cansino to the University of the Philippines, who stressed he was axed in the team and left the “bubble” due to his alleged deteriorating mental health.
He also divulged, in a now-deleted tweet, screenshots of a Facebook group chat with former UST teammates who recounted to their parents the inadequate food and poor health issues inside the “bubble.”
