After nine wins in each of the last two seasons, San Jose State University is initiating a search for a new men's basketball head coach to replace George Nessman. Gene Bleymaier, the Spartans' athletics director made the announcement.
"George Nessman worked hard to create an environment for our student-athletes to be successful. We thank him for all his contributions to San Jose State and wish him the best," said Bleymaier.
Named the San Jose State head coach in 2005, Nessman led the Spartans to an 86-161 win-loss record in eight seasons and a berth in the 2011 College Basketball Invitational (CBI). In 25 seasons as a high school, community college and major college head coach, Nessman has a 445-317 win-loss record.
