As soon as the news of Rick Majerus’ death at age 64 hit Twitter, personal stories of the man’s kindness, humor and foibles began to pour out into the community at large. In honor of one of our all-time favorite college basketball coaches, we’ll share some of the best.

    A really good guy, and smart.
    In 1999 he came to my high school in Wisconsin to run a coaches clinic. All of us on the varsity team got to run his drills and offense for the coaches. After he took us all out for pizza. He was just a nice and funny guy. Not to big-time for anyone, ever.
    Sad day for college basketball
