After parting ways with the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters, Topex Robinson is now heading to Taft Avenue.
De La Salle University announced on Thursday that Robinson is the new head coach of the Green Archers effective January 19.
Robinson also previously coached San Sebastian College and Lyceum of the Philippines University in the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Under his belt, Robinson steered the Pirates to the finals in NCAA Season 93 but fell to San Beda University.
Phoenix, under Robinson, reached the semifinals of the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup, and the quarters in the 2021-22 Governors’ Cup and the recent Commissioner’s Cup.
Robinson will handle a La Salle squad who missed the Final Four bus in UAAP Season 85 after falling to Adamson University in the playoff for the fourth spot. The Green Archers ended the season with a 7-7 record.
Robinson will take over the place of Derrick Pumaren, who has handled the Taft-based squad since 2020.
The University thanked Pumaren for his services to the team.
“DLSU extends its appreciation to former head coach Derrick Pumaren for his dedicated service to the Green Archers,” DLSU said.
