It appears Filipino boxing superstar, Manny Pacquiao is going to give coaching basketball a try.
On Monday, he was introduced as the new head coach of the “Kia Kamao”; an expansion team sponsored by Kia Motors in the Philippine Basketball Association.

Building an expansion team is not a part-time job. Assumably, Pacquiao will have to be directly involved with staff & player selection, and being the HEAD coach; will need to prepare his squad for the regular season, which begins in October. His next fight is scheduled for November.
It will truly be interesting to watch this situation and see how Pac Man divvies up his time. This is presumably a lot to do and we all only get 24 hours in a day.
