As assistant UAAP:
Glenn Capacio (born May 15, 1964 in Palo, Leyte) is a Filipino retired professional basketball player in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) and the former head coach of PBA team GlobalPort Batang Pier and was also the former head coach of the FEU Tamaraws from 2007 to 2010.
College and amateur career
Capacio was the FEU Tamaraws' skipper during the 1983 UAAP season and the most dependable performer for rookie coach Bong Chua. He started his basketball career at Far Eastern University under coach Arturo Valenzona for two years and a year under coach Chee Poblete. He studied at Leyte Institute of Technology during high school and later moved to Manila and joined the Trinity College team for a year until graduation before moving on to FEU. Glenn's commercial experience includes playing for Boogie/Jag Jeans, YCO Shine Masters and RFM-Swift Hotdogs in the PABL. 
He entered the PBA in 1988 as part of the original Purefoods Hotdogs team alongside Jerry Codiñera, perennial All-Star and 1988 Rookie of the Year Jojo Lastimosa and later on by 4-time MVP Alvin Patrimonio. He was an eight-time member of the All-Defensive Team and a member of the 5,000 point club, its 43rd, when he achieved the milestone on November 27, 1998.
Capacio first started his coaching career after being hired by his college alma mater, the Far Eastern University, to coach its basketball team in 2007. He led the team to the Final Four in all of his four years with the team, losing in the semifinals in his first three years and losing to the Ateneo Blue Eagles in the 2010 finals.
In 2012, the Patriots franchise folded after team owner Mikee Romero had his franchise application to the PBA accepted. Capacio took over as the interim head coach for the team. On January 2013, the team announced that it hired Junel Baculi as their permanent head coach. Capacio was relegated to being the first assistant coach of the team.
After the 2013–14 season, Capacio signed with expansion team Kia Sorento as one of their assistant coaches expected to fill the void whenever head coach Manny Pacquiao is unable to attend to the team. After players Alex Nuyles and Mike Burtscher voiced out to social media their frustration to the team, Capacio decided to follow suit. Capacio said that he was unduly terminated by the team because of his failure to attend team meetings. He also said that he was fired as early as January 2015, and with 18 months still left in his contact, the team offered to buy out only three months of his contact, to which he refused. He has since filed a case against the team.
After an uneventful stint with Kia, Capacio decided to go back to the college ranks, where he served as an assistant coach under Aldin Ayo for the Letran Knights of the NCAA Philippines that won the basketball title in 2015.
After Ayo was tapped to be the head coach of the De La Salle Green Archers of the UAAP, he, along with other members of the coaching staff, followed. He won another title there, his first in the UAAP as a coach.
