Former Waterloo East star Nash calls out former coach at Texas Tech

Posted:

Former Waterloo East basketball star Jaron Nash is one of several players speaking out publicly against Texas Tech head coach Billy Gillispie.

Nash and several other former Texas Tech players allege Gillispie violated NCAA rules and mistreated his players.

Nash transferred from Texas Tech to North Dakota last spring. 

Nash told a major sports publication that Gillispie often had his players practice more than 4 hours a day, and once they practiced more than eight hours on a day as some players suffered stress fractures.

NCAA rules regulate practices to not more than 4 hours a day or 20 hours a week.

Nash is one of 15 players to leave the Texas Tech program early since Gillispie took over in March of 2011. Currently Gillispie is in a hospital with an undisclosed illness while the school investigates the matter.
