University of Hawaii sues fired basketball coach Gib Arnold

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Facing potential further sanctions from the NCAA, the University of Hawaii sued embattled, ex-basketball coach Gib Arnold Wednesday.

The suit comes after an NCAA investigation found that Arnold knowingly provided false information to the NCAA and influenced others to do so.

In all the NCAA alleged multiple infractions by the UH basketball program that included free hotel rooms for recruits, a free iPad and free use of a booster's car.

UH officials have since place its men's basketball program on probation for a year and forfeit 36 wins between 2012 and 2014 but are still waiting to hear from the NCAA whether it will issue additional penalties.

We'll have more on the suit, as the story develops.
