After his stint with Smart Gilas, Petron and Barako Bull, Coach Rajko Toroman is back in Serbia. We will miss you Coach Rajko Toroman!
Chot Reyes of Talk N Text will get another shot at handling the National Basketball Team, this time with Smart Gilas, or sometimes called Smart Gilas 2.0. Coach Rajko Toroman ( who is now an SMC Consultant) handled the 1st Smart Gilas team and placed 4th in the FIBA Asia Championship last year.
Coach Chot will handle the new Smart Gilas program which has a new goal which is to gain one of the top three slots in the 2013 FIBA-Asia Championship which will qualify the team to the 2014 FIBA World Championship.
Welcome Coach Chot Reyes!
All the Smart Gilas Pilipinas players attended the PBA 37th Season Opening Ceremonies held on October 2, 2011 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. The Smart Gilas team was applauded by the crowd even Chris Tiu who did not join the PBA draft and Marcus Douthit, who may play as an import in the next conference.
Coach Rajko Toroman who has no contract extension yet was in attendance also and congratulated his players on turning pro.
The Smart Gilas program has been extended to two more years, in time for the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship as qualifier for the 2014 FIBA World Championship. But the contract of Coach Rajko Toroman is until after the 2011 FIBA Asia Championship only.
