WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina (Ticker) -- Wake Forest coach Skip Prosser died on Thursday after collapsing while jogging. He was 56.

Prosser was rushed to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center and reportedly died of a heart attack.

One of the most well-liked coaches in the country, Prosser spent seven seasons with the Demon Deacons after one year at Loyola (Maryland) and seven at Xavier. With the three schools, the veteran coach compiled a 291-146 record.

Very weak thoughts and prays to his family and friends RIP.

Born in Pittsburgh; way too young.

Rest in Peace, Skip.
