Former Obama teammate Dan Hale to coach Marshall boys' basketball

Marshall High School has named Dan Hale its new boys' basketball coach, replacing Bobby Forst. Until he makes a name for himself with victories at Marshall, Hale will be best known as a teammate of president Barack Obama on Punahou School's 1979 high school state championship basketball team in Honolulu. Hale was a three-time all-state player at Punahou.
Hale played at the University of Hawaii and Chaminade University (also in Hawaii) and coached Punahou to the 2008 state championship. Over the years, Hale has coached at the youth, high school and collegiate levels.

Wise decision, Marshall High School! So happy the family will be staying in Northern Virginia. Congratulations, Dan!

That should be "Foma Obama teammate."
