Report: Spartans Fire George Nessman


George Nessman is out as San Jose State’s head basketball coach, according to a report from Parsing the WAC:

PTW has learned that San Jose State Athletic Director Gene Bleimeyer has dismissed Coach George Nessman and his staff, effective immediately. Who will act as an interim coach is unknown at this point.

However, Nessman told the San Jose Mercury News that he had not been dismissed.

“No, we have not been fired — at least no one has told me that,” Nessman said. 

The Spartans have lost 10 games in a row without suspended leading scorer James Kinney and are 7-16 on the season.

Things do not look bright for Nessman regardless of whether he was fired or not, as he could very well be given the boot once the season ends.
