    YENG Guiao is not ready to retire from coaching.

    The seven-time champion coach in the PBA was offered a corporate job at NLEX as contract extension talks fell through and chose to move on.

    Guiao, 63, moved to NLEX in 2016 and also held the position of general manager of the Road Warriors.

    "My only regret was I feel our team was in a breakout situation where it can compete and excel in this conference against the best teams, and it is at such time that I had to leave the team," said the former Pampanga vice governor and congressman.

    "I feel we have the material to be competitive in every position, and our import is good," he added. "Sadly, I can't compete with this team that I put together. But I will be the proudest if they accomplish something this conference."

    "I truly appreciate the offer of NLEX and MPTC management for me to be part of the corporate set-up. They gave me a very tempting offer and it wasn't an easy decision [to decline it since it] gives you and your family security instead of the uncertainty of testing the [coaching] market," Guiao said.
