WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -Wake Forest will name Dino Gaudio to succeed the late Skip Prosser on Wednesday, entrusting the Demon Deacons' program to the veteran coach's longtime top assistant.
The school planned to introduce Gaudio as its new coach at an 11 a.m. news conference, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press under the condition of anonymity because the formal announcement had not yet been made.
Gaudio, 50, had been Wake Forest's associate head coach since 2002 and was Prosser's right-hand man for nearly three decades. He returns to head coaching for the first time since leaving Loyola of Maryland in 2000.
He takes over for Prosser, who died July 26 of an apparent heart attack at the age of 56, leaving the Wake Forest community shaken by grief.
