Former Herd Hoops coach passes away

HUNTINGTON, WV He only coached one year as Head Coach at Marshall University but it was one memorable season.

Carl Tacy took over the program in 1971 with a loaded roster including future NBA draft picks Russell Lee, Mike D'Antoni, and Randy Noll.

That Herd team went 23-4, won 14 straight games, and represented Marshall in the 1972 NCAA Tournament.

Tacy left Marshall for Wake Forest where he coached for 12 seasons.
