Breaking: Chito Narvasa is Out as PBA Commissioner After PBA Board Declines to Extend his Term, Who's Next?

PBA Board won't support renewal of Narvasa's contract as Commissioner

Chito Narvasa was the 9th commissioner of the PBA after succeeding Chito Salud. 

Today November 11, 2017, the PBA board has decided not to support the renewal of the contract of the current commissioner ending the two-year stint of Chito Narvasa.  

Earlier today, the PBA Board of Governors held a meeting at the PBA office and they passed a resolution not to renew or extend the term of Narvasa who has been on a yearly term since he occupied the position August of 2015. 

Present at the PBA board meeting was Al Panlilio of Meralco Bolts,  Siliman Sy of Blackwater Elite, TNT governor Pato Gregorio, Dickie Bachmann of Alaska, Mert Mondragon of Rain or Shine,  Raymond Zorilla of Phoenix,  and Fernandez of NLEX who preceded the meeting. 

No show on the meeting are the 3 SMC teams, including Ginebra, SMB, Starhotshots, Global Port and Kia. Chito Narvasa was also absent. The 7 present teams, however, formed the majority.

NLEX Fernandez clarified that they did not oust Narvasa as commissioner, as they would need two-thirds of the Board, or eight members, to do that. On the flipside however it would also need two-thirds of the vote to renew his contract which won't happen with seven teams against Narvasa. 

Chito Narvasa at 55 years old was a former CEO of Citystate Savings Bank, former president of Basketball Coaches Association of the Philippines and he also coached Shell and Purefoods in the PBA back in the 90's before assuming the position as the commissioner of the PBA.

Commissioner Narvasa Notable Changes

As Commissioner Narvasa spearheaded and looked at how to improve leagues officiating, he introduced changes in deliberate foul, referee substitution and 14 seconds shot lock reset among others.  He also issued an order disallowing trades during draft day. Under his leadership, he has helped with modernizing the PBA to reach the millennials market by updating the website, creating a mobile app, being active on different social media platforms and allowing sports bloggers to cover the games. The PBA has also formed a number of commercial partnerships and has been very accommodating to the National team requirements by loaning players. 

While there are certainly a lot of good things under his regime, there is also the dark clouds of controversies including the latest issue with Christian Standhardinger trade approval among others. 

Who's next?

Majority of the PBA Board has appointed Rickie Santos as OIC to ensure continuity of league operations while the PBA is still looking for the next person to step up.

How Do you feel about PBA Board decision not to renew Chito Narvasa as commissioner?

Extremely Happy
Very Sad
They should have given Chito Narvasa another chance
