MANOA (KHNL) - University of Hawaii athletic director Herman Frasier has announced that Bob Nash, the current associate coach, will take over as new head basketball coach for the University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors.
Nash has served as an assistant coach for the past 23 seasons and also served as a graduate assistant for two seasons.
He played on Hawaii's so-called "Fabulous Five" during the 1970-71 and 1971-72 seasons.
In those years, the Rainbow Warriors compiled a 47-and-8 record, and made the postseason twice, including the school's first NCAA Tournament.
Nash replaces longtime coach Riley Wallace, who is retiring after 20 years at Hawaii.
