Frankie Lim is the new head coach of Brgy. Ginebra

After Barangay Ginebra San Miguel's quarterfinals exit in the PBA Commissioners' Cup, assistant coach Frankie Lim has been named to take over head coaching duties from Ato Agustin. In a report on, San Miguel Corporation big boss Ramon S. Ang confirmed the appointment of Lim to helm the Gin Kings. That’s how newly-appointed Barangay Ginebra coach Frankie Lim described his ascension to the head coaching position of the most popular team in the PBA.

“I am honored and humbled to be appointed head coach of the most popular team in the PBA,” Lim wrote in a statement. “I am thankful to management for giving me the trust and confidence and my duty is to bring the team to the next level of excellence, ensuring that we set higher goals for ourselves to bring back the fire, tenacity and win championships as we owe it to our dear fans.” Lim has won championships both as a player and as coach of the San Beda Red Lions in the NCAA. He has also been part of champion PBA teams, serving as an assistant coach to Eric Altamirano for a Purefoods squad that won the All-Filipino title and as a team executive with Mobiline, later known as Talk ‘N Text, enjoying success there as well. He will be the head coach of a PBA team for the first time, though. “I thank everyone for the support and rest assured I am committed to this role. Surely it is not an easy task, there will be changes, but change is good and I am up for the challenge,” he added. Lim said Olsen Racela and Freddie Abuda, his former teammate at Purefoods, and American coach Kirk Collier will help him out in the coaching staff.
