Wake Forest University says basketball coach Skip Prosser has died at the age of 56.
Details of Prosser's death are unavailable, although the university posted a brief statement on its Web site announcing Prosser's death late this afternoon.
Prosser spent six seasons with the Demon Deacons, winning an
Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season title in 2003 and reaching
the N-C-A-A tournament in his first four seasons. He also led Wake
Forest to the program's first Number One national ranking during
the 2004-2005 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-and-146 in 14 seasons, including a 126-68 record with Wake Forest. While there, he coached future N-B-A stars Chris Paul and Josh Howard, and was the A-C-C coach of the year in 2003.
