Nenad Vucinic set for Meralco return

Never burn your bridges.

That is what Nenad Vucinic did when he resigned as Meralco consultant last August after the PBA Philippine Cup.

And after a one conference absence, the 57-year-old Serbian tactician will return to the Bolts bench for the season-ending Governors’ Cup.

The development was first reported by and confirmed to Tiebreaker Times by multiple sources closely monitoring the situation on Monday afternoon.

Back in the Philippine Cup, Meralco tapped Vucinic as a consultant to head coach Norman Black. Baldwin’s good pal was also an assistant coach with Gilas back then.2022-PBA-Philippine-Cup-Semifinals-San-Miguel-vs-Meralco-Norman-Black-scaled Nenad Vucinic set for Meralco return Basketball News PBA  - philippine sports news

After their Game 7 semis loss to San Miguel last August 17, Vucinic bid the team farewell and returning back home to Serbia.

The Bolts did not fare well in the Commissioner’s Cup, finishing with a 4-8 record for 11th place.

Vucinic will return to the Bolts next month when the team begins its preparation for the last conference for Season 47.

A source added that Vucinic’s contract for this stint will be up until May.

Vucinic is also part of De La Salle University’s shortlist to take over the Green Archers post if ever the school releases Derrick Pumaren. Another possible candidate is Bay Area head coach Brian Goorjian.

Vucinic is also being eyed by numerous B.League teams for the 2023-24 season. He was the former head coach of B2 team Kumamoto.

The second game of each PBA gameday is live-streamed on SMART Sports.
