    BARANGAY Ginebra management quickly diffused widespread rumors that Ato Agustin has resigned as head coach of the Kings in light of the team’s disheartening Game Seven loss to San Mig Coffee in their PLDT myDSL-PBA Philippine Cup semifinal playoff.

    “Ato will still coach Ginebra,” said team board representative Robert Non just moments before Game Two of the Finals series between Rain or Shine and San Mig on Sunday at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

    Non’s curt statement came after reports spread on social media alleging that Agustin has submitted his resignation to team management just days after the Kings’ 110-87 loss to the Mixers in their do-or-die encounter for the last berth in the best-of-seven title series.

    The Ginebra official said replacing Agustin has not been talked about even after the team’s failure to advance to the Finals, adding as far as he knows the former league MVP turned coach is currently in his farm in Pampanga taking a well-deserved rest.

    Non even said matters on the Kings’ import Leon Rodgers was the last time he talked to Agustin shortly after the team’s semifinals series.
