Nenad Vucinic has stepped down from his posts in the coaching staff of Gilas Pilipinas and the Meralco Bolts. 

Meralco's loss to San Miguel in Game 7 of the 2022 PBA Philippine Cup semifinals on Wednesday night marked his last participation for the team.

A source informed ABS-CBN News that Vucinic had been contemplating resignation since the start of the month. He served as an assistant coach in Gilas and was a consultant for the Bolts in the PBA. 

The 57-year-old tactician called the shots for the Philippines in the third window of the FIBA World Cup Asian qualifiers as well as a pair of friendlies against South Korea. 

Vucinic was initially tapped as a consultant for the national team by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas before stepping up to coach the squad for a brief period. 

Vucinic previously coached the New Zealand men's national basketball team.
