I can't believe that this happened. I have met Skip a couple of times and he seemed like a healthy man and was a very nice guy.

Stress and heart failure go hand in hand. What a terrible loss. I pray for the family.

Just goes to show - you can lead an exemplary lifestyle, and your time still comes unexpectly sometimes.

Sorry to hear this. Condolences to the family...both personal and academic.

Wake Forest will be absent a tremendous individual, I'm sure he will be missed. However he did leave a tremendous legacy of "Coaching Excellence"! Prayers for all his family, university fans, and friends.
