Evangelos "Angelos" Koronios (alternate spelling: Aggelos) (Greek: Ευάγγελος "Άγγελος" Κορωνιός; born March 16, 1969) is a Greek professional basketball coach, and a retired professional basketball player.
Born in Athens, Greece, Koronios started playing basketball with the youth clubs of Peristeri in 1982. He began his pro career with the senior men's team of Peristeri in 1986. In 1998, he moved to AEK Athens, where he played for two seasons. Then, he continued his career in PAOK (2000–01), Maroussi, for two seasons (2001–03), Panionios (2003–04), and finally Olympiacos (2004–05).
At the time of his retirement, Koronios was the all-time stats leader of the Greek Basket League in points with 7,080, assists with 1,264, steals with 583, made free throws with 2,020, and three points shots made with 828. He appeared in 448 games in the top-tier league of Greek basketball. His Greek League career records in assists and steals were eventually broken by Dimitris Diamantidis.
In the summer of 2007, he was appointed as the new coach of AEK Athens, but he decided to resign "for personal reasons" on October 25. He was later appointed as the new coach of AEK, following the departure of Minas Gekos, in January 2011. He then coached Kavala, before returning to AEK Athens as an assistant coach.
