Winning a road game would really mean something if they could atleast win at home as well.

CoachNash, the seasons over. It was over when you recruited Lasha as your 3-pt shooter. It was over 2 years ago when you decided to keep Riley's moribund flex-motion offense. Coach Nash your time may be over.

The Warriors, to be taken seriously in a sad sack bottom of the barrel league called the WAC must beat good teams on the road. June Jones could not do it and neither can nash.

Pretty sad when the your opponents shuts down one man and dares the rest of them to beat them. So I guess Nash thinks the problem is the players and not him.

We'll see.

man were we lucky to even get a player like Roderick Flemmings. I don't even want to imagine what the win-loss record would be had we not gotten him to play for UH. You da man Rod...too bad your teammates aren't that great.
Yeah

So the next question is, will he stay?

I know nobody wants to hear this, but we have Nash for at least one more season. His contract runs through the 2009-2010 season, but is up for review after this season for extension. Its seems highly unlikely that Donovan will grant him an extension given the poor attendance numbers, not to mention that the team is spiraling into irrelevancy. But I don't think Nash will get fired because UH would have to buy out his contract. UH's budget is not good right now and I don't think the University will buy out Nash and hire a new coach at this point. So Nash will be a lame duck coach next season which will set the program back another year.
UH needs to force a resignation so they don't have to spend $200,000+ on Nash's final year.
UH is now paying the price for making a bad hire based on emotion and that he "deserved" the job. You don't hire a coach because he deserved it or he paid his dues as an assistant. You hire a coach (especially the Mens BB coach and football) that is a winner and can produce a quality team that puts people in the stands. Higher attendance = more $$$ for UH.
As much as I want Nash to be fired, I don't think its a realistic outcome.
see my other post for possible coaching candidates to rebuild our program.

Flemings has to stay because of the transfer rules. He will lose a year of eligibility if he transfers.
Yeah

I don't agree. If the team can start a turn around now and improve their play along the way, they'll have a good chance in the WAC tourney. That, if anything, will be the equalizing and last chance gasp for them... and Nash.

I think when Villanova took the NCCA a number of years back under Rolle Massimino, they went 17-11.

Anything is possible...

...but I'm not holding my breath.
Yeah

Then let me put it this way...

...how badly does he want to leave?

I've been calling for Nash's firing since his hiring. I thought I might take the next step in trying to find a REAL coach to replace him. Here is my top 3 candidates as of now.

1. Gib Arnold: Assistant Coach USC (4th year). Ranked in top 25 recruiters ( Rivals.com ). GRADUATED FROM PUNAHOU. UH would be the most logical place for his 1st head coaching job.

2. Ernie Kent: Head Coach U. Oregon. Great recruiter and great at developing talent. Has developed several players into the NBA. Has had great guards in years past. Currently having a really bad year in the Pac 10 and could get fired, so he may be available. He could rebuild our program.

3. Jeff Hironaka: Head Coach Seattle Pacific U (6th year). Has a 126-62 coaching record. Led the Falcons to DII NCAA berths last 4 years. Contended for conference title each year as head coach. Might make the jump to D1 if UH offers, which surely would be a pay raise for him. Plus he's the only Japanese American head coach at a four-year univ.
