Oklahoma State forward dies after collapsing at a team workout
The Oklahoma State basketball program has been rocked by tragedy.
Tyrek Coger, a 21-year-old junior college transfer from Raleigh, N.C., collapsed following a team workout Thursday afternoon. Coger was immediately transported to Stillwater Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 6:23 p.m.
Oklahoma State coach Brad Underwood was in Las Vegas recruiting on Thursday when he learned the news. He was expected to fly back to Stillwater as soon as possible to be with his team.
“Tyrek was excited to be at Oklahoma State and had such passion for the game and was looking forward to being an OSU Cowboy,” Underwood said in a statement. “Losing a member of the team is like losing a member of the family. But we know our loss pales in comparison to the pain his family is going through.”

Former Vikings and Cardinals coach Dennis Green has died at the age of 67
Dennis Green, who led the Minnesota Vikings to 97 wins in his 10 seasons as their head coach, died of cardiac arrest at age 67.
The news of Green’s death was reported by multiple outlets including NFL.com. Green coached 13 NFL seasons, from 1992-2001 with the Vikings and then 2004-06 with the Arizona Cardinals. His most memorable moment in that Cardinals run was a fiery rant after a loss to the Chicago Bears, but Green’s legacy goes far beyond that press conference blowup. He’ll be remembered for some great seasons with the Vikings and as a pioneer. Green was one of the first black coaches in NFL history.
