Aces Hire Former LSU Coach Fargas As Team President

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Las Vegas Aces have hired former LSU coach Nikki Fargas as the team's president.

She replaces Bill Laimbeer, who had been the president of the franchise since it moved from San Antonio to Nevada. Laimbeer will still coach the team, but had let new owner Mark Davis know that he didn't want to juggle the two jobs anymore.

The 48-year-old Fargas coached LSU for 10 years and stepped down earlier this month.
