Yes, he was a good coach and entertaining to watch. He took one of his Utah teams to the Final Four if I remember correctly? I could be wrong. The team with Keith Van Horn maybe? How did he die?

Indeed---Utah beat UNC in the semifinal...Kentucky beat Utah in the Final game...Doleac and Andre Miller were Utah's driving forces...

You are correct. It was the 1998 Championship game against Kentucky. It was a great game. Kentucky had to come from behind to win it. He had Keith Van Horn and Andre Miller on that team. I think he had some sort of heart ailment.

RIP....growing up in Utah this guy started my passion for basketball and watching him coach was great. If you ever get a chance you need to read his book My Life on a Napkin, really interesting.

Van horn was the guy who wore the high socks right? Thats too bad about Majerus. I hope he is in a better place now.
