JACKSONVILLE, Texas — T. Lynn Nabi, who has served as women’s basketball coach at Jacksonville College
for the past six seasons, is hanging his whistle up.He will remain at the college and will be taking over soon as academic dean replacing Tam Clark, who vacated the position late last year.
“I coached my last game today (Friday) at Jacksonville College,” Nabi said Friday evening.
“It was a great season. We were predicted to finish in last place in the conference, and we went all the way to the semi-finals of the conference tournament. It’s been a great six-year run as women’s basketball coach at Jacksonville College.”
Nabi, who is also the athletic director, said he will continue to be responsible for compliance, hiring and budgeting within the athletic department.
“Jacksonville College and Dr. Mike (Smith) has put a lot of trust in me and I appreciate the confidence that everyone has in my ability to perform my new duties,” Nabi said.
According to Nabi, no decision has been made at this time as to who his replacement will be, but he said that he expects current associate head coach Leasa Ailshie to receive strong consideration for the job.
