Marcial mum on top PBA post
Willie Marcial said he would wait for his appointment as PBA officer-in-charge to lapse before making plans amid reports that several parties were pushing for him to be formally named league commissioner.
Marcial was given 30 days as league caretaker and has already put in place noteworthy projects that the league could pursue if it awards him a tenured post as commissioner.
“I’d rather wait when the 30 days are over,” Marcial told sportswriters on Wednesday during the first Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum for the year at Tapa King-Farmers Market in Cubao.
“I don’t know whether it (PBA commissioner) will be given to me. What are their expectations (from me), and also my expectations from them. That’s why I can’t say anything.”
Marcial was appointed OIC after the resignation of former Commissioner Chito Narvasa became effective at the start of the year.
