After losing key deputies in the offseason, Alaska has enlisted the services of Eric Altamirano, Danny Ildefonso, and Tony dela Cruz to assist coach Alex Compton this upcoming season.

“I am really excited about the new coaches we have added to our coaching staff,” said Compton, who lost deputies Louie Alas and Topex Robinson to Phoenix.

“Coach Eric Altamirano is a proven winner at every single level he has coached at including the PBA. Alaska gets a veteran coach with tremendous experience and character in Coach Eric, truly a man of excellence,” he said.

Ildefonso, meanwhile, boasts a decorated career being a two-time PBA MVP with San Miguel, before finishing his career with Meralco.

He is currently serving as a big man coach for the NU Bulldogs under coach Jamike Jarin.

Rounding out the new hires for Alaska is Tony dela Cruz, who has now shifted to the coaching after retiring last month.
