Evangelos Koronios, commonly known as Angelos Koronios (alternate spelling: Aggelos) (Greek: Ευάγγελος "Άγγελος" Κορωνιός; born 16 March 1969) is a Greek professional basketball coach and retired basketball player.

Professional career[edit]

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, with Olympiacos (2004–05).

At the time of his retirement, Koronios was the unofficial all-time stats leader of the Greek Basket League, since the 1986–87 season in points scored, with 7,080, in assists, with 1,264, in steals, with 583, in free throws made, with 2,020, and in three points shots made, with 828.[1] He appeared in 448 games in the top-tier level league of Greek basketball.[1] His Greek League career records in assists and steals, were eventually broken by Dimitris Diamantidis.[2]

National team career[edit]

Koronios was a member of the senior Greek national basketball team. With Greece's senior national team, he played at the 1992 FIBA European Olympic Qualifying Tournament, at the 1997 FIBA EuroBasket, at the 1998 FIBA World Championship, and at the 1999 FIBA EuroBasket. He also won a silver medal at the 1991 Mediterranean Games.

Coaching career[edit]

In the 2005–06 season, Koronios started his coaching career, working as the head coach at Alimos. He spent the next season (2006–07) coaching Sporting, and with them, he won the Greek 2nd Division championship.

In the summer of 2007, he was appointed as the new head coach of AEK Athens, but he decided to resign, "for personal reasons", on 25 October. He was later appointed as the new head coach of AEK, following the departure of Minas Gekos from that position, in January 2011. After that, he was the head coach of Kavala, before returning to AEK Athens, as an assistant coach.
