FOR now, Roger Gorayeb is still National University's women's volleyball coach.
After the Lady Bulldogs wound up the UAAP season in sixth place with a 7-7 card over the weekend, Gorayeb has seen enough, as he gave the school management a free hand to review the program.
“I have no knowledge and I have not seen anything in writing,” said NU athletic director and UAAP board member Chito Loyzaga in a text message. “I have not seen or spoken to him.”
Despite having talented 6-foot-5 middle hitter Jaja Santiago in tow, the Lady Bulldogs missed the Final Four in the past two seasons.
“As a courtesy I have to tender my resignation kasi dalawang taon na yan,” said Gorayeb after NU was eliminated by University of Santo Tomas in five sets last Saturday.
Santiago still has a year left on her eligibility, but her future with the Lady Bulldogs remains hanging in the balance.
"Still undecided po. Hindi pa po talaga ako nakaka-decide," said Santiago, considered as one of the top volleyball players in the country.
NU was considered one of the favorites after winning an off-season league last year with Santiago, playmaker Jasmine Nabor, Risa Sato and Jorelle Singh leading the charge.
