AP Source: George Washington’s Karl Hobbs resigns

A person familiar with the situation says Karl Hobbs has

resigned as men’s basketball coach at George Washington after 10

seasons at the school.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on Monday on condition

of anonymity because Hobbs’ resignation has not been publicly

announced by the university.

Hobbs’ resignation comes less than a week after Patrick Nero was

introduced as George Washington’s new athletic director.

Hobbs was the A-10 coach of the year after leading George

Washington to a 27-3 record in the 2005-06 season, including 16-0

in the conference. In his 10 seasons, Hobbs posted a 166-129

record.

In the last four seasons, George Washington has struggled going

52-64 overall and just 25-39 in the conference under the

49-year-old Hobbs.
