CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -Former Virginia Tech and Davidson head coach Bobby Hussey died Tuesday. He was 67.
Hussey most recently worked as an assistant at Clemson for three seasons under head coach Larry Shyatt. Clemson officials said in a news release that Hussey died in a medical facility in Charlotte, N.C. There was no cause of death given.
``He was everything you would want in a coaching mentor and friend,'' said Shyatt, now an assistant at Florida. ``He had a positive impact on so many of our players on and off the court.''
Hussey's Division I head coaching career began at Davidson, where coached eight seasons. He posted 20-win seasons in 1985-86 and 1986-87, winning the Southern Conference tournament in 1986 to reach the NCAA tournament.
Hussey first came to Clemson on Cliff Ellis' staff in 1989-90 and left to join Bill Foster at Virginia Tech two years later.
When Foster retired, Hussey was promoted to head coach for the 1997-98 season, lasting two years with the program. Hussey then returned to Clemson with Shyatt.
After Shyatt was dismissed after the 2002-03 season, Hussey stayed around campus advising coaches and working at camps.
Hussey won 310 games in his coaching career, including 179 at Belmont Abbey where he worked for 10 seasons.
Hussey is survived by his wife, Sandra; and their two sons, Bo and Greg.
