Career highlights and awards

Alfredo "Pido" Jarencio (born September 5, 1964) is a retired Filipino professional basketball player and current head coach of the GlobalPort Batang Pier in the PBA.[1]

Playing career[edit]

A former national team standout under the Danding Cojuangco-backed Northern Cement basketball team, Jarencio played for San Miguel, then known as Magnolia Ice Cream, Presto, Purefoods, Swift, Ginebra/Gordon's Gin, and Tanduay during his PBA career. He was a member of the Gordon's Gin Boars who won the 1997 PBA Commissioner's Cup Finals against the Alaska Milkmen. Known as "The Fireman", he distinguished himself as one of the league's best three-point shooters, especially in clutch situations.

Coaching career[edit]

He was the head coach of UST Growling Tigers Men's Senior Basketball team in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines from 2006 to 2014. In his first season as a head coach in 2006, he led the Growling Tigers to the UAAP title, beating the heavily favored Ateneo Blue Eagles 2–1.[2] A title that has eluded his playing career with the Glowing Goldies. He led the Tigers to three UAAP Finals appearances and is one of the most popular UST basketball coaches of all-time, to the level of legendary coach Aric del Rosario.
