    Died of heart failure in Los Angeles at age of 64
    He lived out of a hotel room.
    He was obese and an overeater, which probably led to his chronic health problems.

    He was known to verbally abuse both his players and his staff.
    His Utah team lost to Kentucky in the 1998 NCAA title game though the Utes led most of the game.
    He looked like Bill Kirchenbauer.
    He had only one losing season in 25 years of coaching.
    He coached mainly mid-major universities though he got lucrative offers from more highly-regarded basketball programs.
    His Utah teams produced NBA lottery picks three straight years (1997-99).
    He swam a mile each day.
    He was a cult figure among college basketball fans for his self-depreciation about his weight and his one-liners.
    He was on a heart transplant list at the time of his death.
