SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Don Meyer, one of the winningest coaches in college men's basketball, has died in South Dakota.
Family spokeswoman Brenda Dreyer says the former Northern State coach died of cancer at 6:52 a.m. Sunday. He was 69.
Meyer led his teams to the playoffs 19 times and compiled a 923-324 record. He retired in 2010, after a decade at Northern State in Aberdeen, South Dakota, and 24 seasons at Lispcomb in Tennessee.
Four months after a near-fatal car accident in 2008 and a cancer diagnosis, Meyer was coaching from a wheelchair when he passed Bobby Knight as the NCAA's winningest coach in men's basketball history. Duke's Mike Krzyzewski took the title in 2012.
Meyer was a standout athlete at Northern Colorado. He began his head coaching career at Hamline in Minnesota.
