Wake’s Prosser dies suddenly at 56

Wake Forest men’s basketball coach Skip Prosser died this morning in Winston-Salem of an apparent heart attack after jogging. Prosser coached the Deacons for seven seasons. In 2003, Wake Forest won the ACC regular season and Prosser received Coach of the Year honors.

Prosser enjoyed early success in Winston-Salem, taking the Deacons to the NCAA Tournament in each of his first four seasons. His teams had struggled a recent years but after signing a couple of big name recruits, things were looking up for the Deacs and Prosser for the future.
