Gibson, former Red Raiders coach and player, dies
LUBBOCK, Texas -- Former Texas Tech basketball coach Gene Gibson, who led the Red Raiders to the NCAA tournament in his first year, has died. He was 82.
Gibson, of Dallas, died Saturday at Presbyterian Hospital in Plano from complications of five surgeries over the past few months, his daughter, Lisa Gibson, said Thursday.
"He just wasn't able to bounce back," she said.
Gibson played for the Red Raiders from 1947-50 and was All-Border Conference center in his last season.
In 1962, his first year as head coach, he led Tech to the second round of the NCAA tournament. The Red Raiders lost to Colorado. He compiled a 101-91 record from 1961-69.
In 1965, Gibson's Red Raiders team won the Southwest Conference title but had to forfeit because of an ineligible player.
He served in the Army in the Pacific during World War II, Lisa Gibson said.
Services were scheduled for 3 p.m. Sunday at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Dallas
