Silence means what? Baldwin mum on Ateneo

DEAFENING SILENCE. Tab Baldwin neither confirmed nor denied rumors that he will be calling the shots for Ateneo next season.
TNT, the flagship team of the Manny V. Pangilinan group in the PBA, scored a huge victory on Sunday.
If rumors turn out to be true, however, they aren’t the only winners from the group this weekend.
At least two reports have said that Ateneo de Manila University is close to naming Tab Baldwin as its mentor for next season. This appointment is said to coincide with his current posts as head coach of the Philippine national basketball team and consultant for TNT.
Asked about it after the Tropang Texters huge victory, however, the American-Kiwi simply said, “No comment.”
The Blue Eagles are in need of a new mentor after Bo Perasol’s contract was not renewed at the end of the recently-concluded season. Whoever takes over for him inherits a lineup that will have to adjust to life without Kiefer Ravena and Von Pessumal, but will still have loads of talent in the form of CJ Perez and Matt Nieto, among others.
