Coaching Legend Don Meyer Live at JUCO Banquet

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.–NewsChannel 5’s Josh Moser talked to JUCO keynote speaker and coaching legend, Don Meyer, Friday at Two Rivers Convention Center.

At the time of Meyer’s retirement in 2010, he was the most successful coach in men’s basketball history with 923 wins. But he had to overcome adversity to get there.

A car accident in 2008 left him with serious injuries and the amputation of his left leg. During the emergency surgery, doctors found cancer, but that didn’t stop the famed basketball coach.

Meyer returned to the court two months later and continued coaching for two more years.
