ASHLAND, Va. -- Hal Nunnally, the winningest men's coach in Randolph-Macon College history, died Wednesday. He was 65.
On Oct. 30, Nunnally was inducted into the Randolph-Macon Athletic Hall of Fame, but was unable to attend the ceremony because of his declining
health, the school said.
A former student at the college, Nunnally was an assistant under longtime coach Paul Webb. Nunnally succeeded Webb in 1975 and led the Yellow Jackets
to a 431-232 record in 24 seasons.
In his second season, Nunnally led Randolph-Macon to the NCAA Division II national championship game, where they lost to Tennessee-Chattanooga.
A Petersburg native, Nunnally led Randolph-Macon to 20 winning seasons, 10 20-win seasons and 10 NCAA tournament appearances.
He earned 11 coach of the year awards, including six from the National Association of Basketball Coaches in the South Atlantic District (1977, 1981,
1983, 1984, 1989, 1990). Nunnally retired in 1999.
Funeral arrangements are pending, the school said.
