Chris Gavina Resigns as Kia's Head Coach

Chris Gavina Resigns as Kia's Head Coach

Ricky Dandan takes over coaching duties

Gavina's resignation came after Kia' 23-point loss to Phoenix.

The Kia Picanto entered the 43rd season of the PBA fresh from a winless campaign during the 2016 Governors' Cup. Don't forget that they also traded their right to pick the top pick in the draft which eventually happened to be the Filipino-German and Gilas big man, Christian Standhardinger. Despite trading their potential future star, the Picanto managed to pose a threat against the NLEX Road Warriors in their season-opener before losing, 119-115. However, their next game,e against the Phoenix Fuel Masters was something that hit them the most as it was a 23-point blowout loss, their 14th straight loss.

Just when things couldn't get any better for the Picanto, Chris Gavina will start 2018 without a team to coach as he submitted his resignation yesterday- a move that was confirmed by Joe Lipa, the team's general manager. Ironically, Gavina's resignation came just two days after Kia announced that he was the team's head coach. Was.

Gavina started as Manny Pacquiao's deputy coach- all while the playing coach wasn't on the court. Despite the stockpile of losses, we can't argue with the fact that Chris Gavina did his job, leading Kia to its only playoff appearance so far back in 2016 before losing to the Meralco Bolts.

Ricky Dandan is set to take over at the helm in the next games of Kia. Will he be the permanent coach or only in an interim capacity will be something that we'll have to wait and see.

Conclusion

Will Chris Gavina's resignation bring good things to the still winless Kia Picanto? It depends on the adjustments that will be made come the games. After all, Kia still has a bunch of quality players who can score at will and lead the team to wins. They just need to rediscover how they started 4-0 like they did back in the 2016 Governors' Cup under Chris Gavina.
