Grambling names Washington hoops coach

Grambling, LA (Sports Network) - Grambling State has named Bobby Washington head men's basketball coach, the school announced Wednesday.

Washington held the position on an interim basis this past season, when the team went 7-21 and upended Jackson State, the SWAC's regular season champion, in the conference tournament.

"I think Coach Washington did a good job last season," said Grambling athletic director Lin Dawson. "I'm impressed by his vigor and his passion for the game. He has shown that he can fit in well with the Grambling community and he provides the team with the stability that is needed. I'm looking forward to continuing to work with him to provide our student-athletes with the tools they need for success both on and off the court."

Prior to joining Grambling, Washington was head coach at Seminole Community College in Sanford, Florida, for five years.
