WASHINGTON (AP) - 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.
