WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Wake Forest basketball coach Skip Prosser has died, the university said Thursday. He was 56.
Prosser spent six seasons with the Demon Deacons, winning an Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season title in 2003 and reaching the NCAA tournament in his first four seasons. He also led Wake Forest to the program's first No. 1 national ranking during the 2004-05 season.
Before arriving in Winston-Salem, Prosser was head coach at Xavier for seven seasons and at Loyola of Maryland for one year.
Prosser had a career record of 291-146 in 14 seasons, including 126-68 with Wake Forest. While there, he coached future NBA stars Chris Paul and Josh Howard, and was the ACC coach of the year in 2003.
