Willie Wilson to assume role of playing assistant coach for Phoenix



PBA Media Bureau

Willy Wilson knows he is at the tailend of his playing career and retirement is soon upon him.

But the hardworking Phoenix forward doesn’t plan on walking away from the game he loves for good by the time he decides to hang up his sneakers.

The 37-year-old Wilson already has his post-retirement planned out as he takes on a dual role for the Fuel Masters starting next conference.

“Willy is playing a greater role as a playing-assistant coach this Commissioner’s Cup,” Phoenix head coach Ariel Vanguardia said on Tuesday after wrapping up practice at Upperdeck Sports Center in Pasig City. “He wants a career in coaching after his stint so he’s been showing enthusiasm in it.” – INQUIRER.net
