WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - Bob Gregory, a three-year basketball starter for Manhattan College who went on to teach and coach in the New York City public school system for almost 30 years, has died. He was 63.
Gregory, who graduated from Manhattan in 1972 and played professionally in France for one year, died Tuesday after 18 months of fighting brain cancer, his family said.
He coached the girls basketball teams at Columbus H.S. and at Bronx High School of Science, where he compiled a 121-71 record that included 17-1 seasons in 2007-08 and 2008-09, reaching the PSAL semifinals in the second season.
Gregory is survived by wife Yolanda, stepdaughter Alexis, two grandsons, five brothers and sisters and five nieces and nephews.
A viewing will be Thursday at Ballard-Durand Funeral Services in White Plains, and a funeral Mass will be Friday at 10 a.m. at Sacred Heart Church in Hartsdale.
