The La Salle Green Archers will be handled by a foreign head coach for UAAP Season 82 — just not by the name initially reported.

Rather than Tim Lewis, as initially reported, several sources said on Friday that now the Green Archers are focused on bringing in Jermaine Byrd as their new coach.

The development was first reported by Matthew Li of Tiebreaker Times.

Just hours later, however, sources clarified that nothing was set in stone. “’Di pa final yan,” a source was quoted in saying.
