Rick Majerus, who had only one losing record in 25 seasons of coaching college basketball, has died. He was 64.
Majerus, a usually jovial and often brash coach, had a history of heart problems and said last month that he would not be returning to Saint Louis University because of his cardiac condition.
John Huntsman, a longtime friend of Majerus, confirmed in a statement that Majerus died of heart failure in a Los Angeles hospital.
"Majerus was one of the premiere coaches in college basketball history and a dedicated mentor to thousands of young men and women. We will miss him greatly," Hunstman said in a statement that he released to the Salt Lake City Tribune.
