Here's one coach that players and refs won't want to argue with: Boxer
"I need to prove that my skills aren't limited to just boxing, but basketball as well," Pacquiao said. "I really like basketball. Even though I have many accomplishments in boxing, basketball is still in my heart."
The first official action of Coach Pacquiao was to name his assistant: former PBA star Glenn Capacio.
The 2014-15 PBA season will get underway in October and Pacquiao is scheduled to fight in November. So this couldn't merely be a publicity stunt, could it? PBA Commissioner Chito Salud says no.
"These past few weeks there have been so many comments, so many concerns regarding Manny's possibility of joining the PBA and many of these concerns have been expressed in my mind to protect the interest genuinely of our national treasure Manny Pacquiao," Salud said.
