Sophomore Yogin Kothari says the decision to not fire Hobbs last year was the right one, but that wont be the case if GW doesn’t make the A-10 this year.
There’s no denying that Hobbs has had his share of issues, but the time to fire him hasn’t come. Remember that when Hobbs took over the reins in 2001, this program had not been too successful under former head coach Tom Penders – a coach who had not led the team to a winning season since his first as the men’s head coach. After two mediocre seasons in 2001-2002 and 2002-2003, Hobbs led the team to an NIT appearance and then its first Atlantic 10 undefeated season just two years later in 2005. From 2005-2007, he led the team to three NCAA Tournament appearances.
