Dino Gaudio Named Finalist for Skip Prosser Man of the Year Award
March 6, 2009
The Skip Prosser Man of the Year Award is given annually to a division I head coach who best represent the high standards of the coaching profession--winning with integrity.
"It's a great group of finalists," said Mark Prosser, son of the late Skip Prosser and chairman of the award selection committee. "It was difficult to narrow the list down to the finalists. There were so many outstanding coaches."
The twelve finalists were selected from a group of 20 semi-finalists compiled by the selection panel. The ten finalists include Jim Calhoun (Connecticut), Jeff Capel (Oklahoma), Ed Conroy (The Citadel), Ed DeChellis (Penn State), Jamie Dixon (Pittsburgh), Dino Gaudio (Wake Forest), Tom Izzo (Michigan State), Trent Johnson (LSU), Lon Kruger (UNLV), Billy Lange (Navy), Stew Morrill (Utah State), Bruce Weber (Illinois).
The award, which is named in memory of former Wake Forest head coach Skip Prosser who passed away suddenly on July 26, 2007, was established by CollegeInsider.com and the Prosser family.
The 2009 recipient will be announced at the Final Four in Detroit.
