Hawaii fires hoop coach Nash

HONOLULU (AP) Bob Nash was fired as coach of the University of Hawaii's men's basketball team on Monday after posting a 34-56 record over three seasons.

"This was a very tough decision," athletic director Jim Donovan said in a statement. "No person has shown more dedication to UH basketball than Bob Nash."

Nash was a member of the "Fabulous Five," a group of UH basketball players during the 1970-71 and 1971-72 seasons that led the team to a 47-8 record. They made the postseason twice, including the school's first NCAA tournament appearance.

Nash's son, Bobby, a shooting guard, played for the Shiga Lakestars in the bj-league in 2008-09 and this season until being released last week.
