Greg Tacon is no longer the boys basketball coach at Kamehameha, according to three sources who requested anonymity because the school has not made an official announcement.
The sources said Tacon was let go within the last two weeks. Multiple calls to Tacon and Kamehameha athletic director Glennie Adams last week and this week were not returned.
The Warriors went 6-4 in the ILH in the recently concluded winter season and failed to qualify for the Division I state tournament.
Tacon was hired by the Warriors in June 2013 and spent five years as the head man. The Warriors went 22-28 in that span in ILH regular season games and failed to qualify for the state tournament.
Tacon previously was the boys head coach at Punahou and Moanalua.
Tacon is the second basketball coach at Kamehameha to find out he won’t be back next season. In late March, girls basketball coach Joe Cho was let go after four seasons.
A change of head coach also happened in the Kamehameha baseball program prior to the season now in progress. Thomas Perkins and the whole varsity and JV staff were released in January. Kahi Kaanoi is the new varsity baseball coach.
