When McGuire passed away at the age of seventy-two in early 2001 after a long illness, he left behind a rich legacy that had a touch of poetry. In the middle of the 1976-77 season, McGuire announced to his team that this would be his last year in coaching. The season ended with McGuire overcome with emotion, sitting on the Marquette bench as tears streamed down his face. His Warriors had given their beloved coach the ultimate going-away present, a national championship.
In I Remember Al McGuire the legendary basketball coach and commentator is recalled by dozens of associates who offer their favorite anecdotes, insights, assessments, and other assorted memories of a basketball junkie who was as quick with a quip as he was with a word of encouragement. Among those contributing to this book are his former players and assistant coaches as well as other head coaches, media personalities, friends, and associates who knew him well.
