Far Eastern University is pleased to announce the appointment of Rodericko “Olsen” Racela as the new head coach of the FEU Men’s Basketball Team.

Olsen had a distinguished 18 year playing career in the PBA, winning 9 titles with Purefoods and San Miguel as well as being a five time mythical team member.

He was also the head coach of the Energen Philippine youth basketball team from 2011-2012 and the Petron Blaze Boosters in the PBA from 2012-2013. Currently, he serves as an assistant coach to Tim Cone with Barangay Ginebra.

Olsen will take over from his brother Nash Racela, who had a successful 4 year stint with the Tamaraws. Nash will remain as a consultant to the FEU basketball program.

Let’s give our support to Coach Olsen and the Tamaraws as we prepare for the 80th season of the UAAP.
