NEW ORLEANS COACH COLLAPSES IN SLCC GYM, DIES
Tommy Joe Eagles, University of New Orleans' new head basketball coach died of an apparent heart attack late Saturday morning while visiting friends in Salt Lake City.
Eagles, 45, had been visiting Scotty Robertson, an assistant coach for the Phoenix Suns, and three players who had played for him in college. He was en route to Phoenix where he was going to look at prospective players. Robertson was coaching the team's summer league. Eagles collapsed about 11:40 a.m. during a practice at Salt Lake Community College's South City campus gym while passing a basketball to player Aaron Swinson, one of his own former students at Auburn University.
Paramedics were unable to revive him at the scene. He was pronounced dead on arrival at FHP Hospital in South Salt Lake.
"Everybody is kind of in shock," said university spokeswoman Kit Lipps.
The Louisiana native had been appointed to the head basketball position at the University of New Orleans earlier this summer. Eagles had been coach at Auburn.
Robertson was the coach who recruited him at Louisiana Tech. He was an assistant when Utah Jazz star Karl Malone played there.
Survivors include his wife, Connie, and two children, Jamie and Katie, all of New Orleans.
