Remembering Skip Prosser

The college basketball world is still coming to terms with the death of Wake Forest coach Skip Prosser yesterday. Prosser was 56 years old and had been jogging on campus. His death shocked many, and the Web features many excellent tributes to him.

• The head of reflected on the man's unusual kindness and openness, particularly for a head basketball coach.


• ESPN's Andy Katz recalls an interview with Prosser just a day and a half before his death.

• A Wake Forest alum reflects on what Prosser mean to his school.

Fifty-six ain't particularly old, people. (Rick Majerus is older than that.) Good thoughts go in the direction of the Prosser family, and all who knew and worked with him at Wake Forest. We enjoyed that ESPN Classic played Wake Forest games last night; a classy touch, we thought.
