Tab Baldwin will no longer be part of the TNT KaTropa staff in the PBA.
Team manager Gabby Cui confirmed Thursday the news that Baldwin is out as a consultant and assistant coach for the flagship MVP franchise.
Nevertheless, Baldwin remains as head coach for the UAAP champion Ateneo Blue Eagles and as a program director for the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas.
"Coach Tab will be focusing on his coaching chores in Ateneo and his role in SBP," Cui said.
"We would like to thank Coach Tab and wish him well," he added.
Baldwin was fined P75,000 and suspended for three games by the PBA last week for his comments on the Coaches Unfiltered podcast.
However, the KaTropa implied that the decision to let Baldwin walk away from TNT was unrelated to the incident.
"We decided on this transition way before the lockdown," Cui said.
"The team is adapting well to the system of coach Bong Ravena and consultant Mark Dickel," he added.
