A message from Coach Ganot

Eran Ganot, head coach of the University of Hawai’i basketball team, recently made his first public statement since beginning an indefinite and undisclosed medical leave of absence on November 6.

Ganot posted the following on his social media accounts on December 12:

A special Mahalo for the incredible outpouring of support during this difficult time. It has certainly pushed me through some tough moments. As I said, upon my leave, I have a plan and I will be back. The plan has been going well and am looking forward to making my return soon. My family and I are so grateful for the tremendous support we have received from all over, including the great people in Hawaii, UH, our administration, and our medical team. Our program has been built on a rock solid culture which is pushed forward by the amazing people we have on board. Our staff and student-athletes have been tremendous and couldn’t be prouder of them. This is a tough, resilient, connected, and unselfish group that takes great pride in representing this great state and will keep improving! Again, thank you all for reaching out, for sending love and aloha to me and my awesome family. We love you and look forward to seeing you all soon.

Go Bows!!
Eran Ganot

Ganot has been making periodic visits with the Rainbow Warriors over the last week, but remains on medical leave.

The Warriors are 6-3 this season, and will host Samford on Sunday afternoon (3:30 p.m. start) at the Stan Sheriff Center. Chris Gerlufsen has been serving as acting head coach during Ganot’s absence, and is expected to remain in that role for Sunday’s game.
