Head Coach Jorge Gallent

Jorge Gallent will be taking over the head coaching job for B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados. There were a lot of candidates from Purefoods/San Miguel/Ginebra Teams but SMC decided Gallent is a right fit for the Llamados. Gallent joined Purefoods mid 2008-2009 season as an assistant coach to new Meralco Coach Ryan Gregorio.

As a player in the PBL, Gallent won seven (7) championships with Stag Pale Pilsen/Tanduay Rhum in the PBL under head coach Alfrancis Chua. And as a coach, he won six (6) titles with the Harbour Centre squad. And he hopes to bring this championship experience as player and coach to the Purefoods franchise and also defend the All-Filipino Cup in the 36th Season.

Only Koy Banal and Dayong Mendoza are still under contract as assistant coaches for Derby Ace. Congratulations Coach Jorge Gallent and Good luck!

Purefoods/Derby Ace Name is back for now!

San Miguel Corporation is retaining the name B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados for the next conference of the Philippine Basketball Association which starts on October 3, 2010 as the sale for Purefoods may not push through. This means Petron is out and SMC may decide not to sell the whole Purefoods franchise. At least we are sure that for one more conference, they will still be called B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados.
