Rest in Peace, Skip Prosser

I am stunned to hear that Wake Forest head basketball coach Skip Prosser died today. All the sympathy in the world goes to his wife, Nancy and his sons, Scott and Mark.

He suffered an apparent heart attack while jogging this morning.

Prosser was a native of Carnegie, and almost let his hometown love sway him to take the Pitt head coaching vacancy when Ben Howland left for UCLA. Prosser and Pitt were in discussion about the opening before Prosser decided to remain at Wake Forest.

The 2003 ACC Coach of the Year led Loyola, Xavier and Wake to tourney bids. He was 56.

Rest in Peace, Skip.
