Former Duke basketball coach Bill Foster dies at 85
Longtime men’s basketball coach Bill Foster passed away on Friday at the age of 85.
A coach at Duke from 1974–85, Foster led the Blue Devils to a 113–64 record after a less-than-stellar first season, including two ACC championships, two Big Four titles and a trip to the 1978 Final Four, where they lost to Kentucky in the championship game.
Most recently, Foster served as associate commissioner and director of basketball operations for the Southwestern Conference, and did consulting for the Western Athletic Conference and Big 12 Conference. He was also a member of the board of trustees of the Basketball Hall of Fame.
