SAN JUAN, MM—Marc Pingris has stepped down from his post as the PSL commissioner.

In a statement on Monday night, the PBA legend said that he had a hard time pondering his next move, especially since he had made major contributions to making the PSL's debut season a major success.

"It was a very tough decision, but I know it is the right one. I will always be grateful for the opportunity given to me," Pingris said.

Under his leadership, Pingris instilled discipline during the PSL's maiden season, which had the Visayas-Mindanao-based Pearl of the Orient Cup and the Luzon-based Dumper Cup.

Pingris didn't hesitate to impose hefty fines on erring players to serve as a lesson never to make bad fouls or unsportsmanlike moves again.

Even if he is no longer in the PSL front office, Pingris said that he will continue to contribute to the betterment of the Philippine basketball community.

"[I] will continue to be of service to the basketball community," he further said.

A rumor surfaced over the weekend, though, that Pingris is considering deferring his player retirement and could suit up for the Imus Bandera in the MPBL.

However, a source told Dugout Philippines that he denied the said report in what would be his last Zoom meeting with PSL officials.
