    HEAD coaches of Emilio Aguinaldo College and Lyceum have denied any knowledge of claims that the two schools will no longer be playing in the NCAA starting in Season 90.

    Unverified reports surfaced on Twitter on Monday that the Generals and the Pirates will no longer be taking part in the college league this season for unspecified reasons.

    Lyceum coach Bonnie Tan said he was surprised to hear about the reports on the school's supposed pullout but made it clear that management has the final say on the matter.

    “I am just the coach,” said Tan when asked to comment on the report after the Pirates’ match in the Filoil preseason tournament.

    “I will let our management worry about those things. But I am surprised to hear that,” said Tan, whose team entered the league in 2011.

    EAC coach Gerry Esplana, meanwhile, cast doubt on the claim, pointing out that the Generals have been doing everything to become a regular member of the country's oldest collegiate league.

    “Nagpapakamatay kami para maging permanente sa NCAA tapos aalis kami?” said Esplana. “Hindi naman siguro.”

    EAC is just one season away from being a regular member in the NCAA after joining the league as a probationary member in 2009 following stints in several minor leagues.
