In The March 2021 CLJ Issue--Still learning from Jimmy V

Jim Valvano who died in 1993 at age 47 would have turned 75 on March 10. The former NC State basketball coach and athletic director led the Wolfpack to the 1983 NCAA championship. Accusations of rules violations—which ultimately revealed no outright major violations in recruiting or financial practices—forced Valvano to resign in 1990.
