Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

Lawrence Chiongson is back as UE Red Warriors coach?

Just got word that Lawrence Chiongson is back as head coach of the University of the East Red Warriors. Chiongson last coached in Season 73 after which he was replaced by Jerry Codinera. Chiongson led the Warriors to the Final of Season 72 where they lost to Ateneo in three matches.

Now Chiongson is reportedly replacing Boycie Zamar. 

Here is the official memo from UE announcing that Zamar is no longer the head coach.

The timing is rather curious as the the Red Warriors are gearing up for the summer leagues. It has been confirmed that the coaching change will not affect their participation in the summer tournaments.

No confirmation yet from UE's side about Chiongson's return if true at all.
