Even 50 years after his death, Coach E.A. Diddle remains one of the most successful coaches in the history of college sports.
A pioneer of the fast break and one of the winningest coaches in college basketball history, Diddle had a gift for spotting unpolished talent and molding them into outstanding athletes who often exceeded expectations. Upon his retirement in 1964, he had won more games than any other coach in NCAA history and still ranks among the top 16 today.
Join author and syndicated newspaper columnist Gary West as he explores the life and legacy of EA Diddle through conversations with four of Coach Diddle's former players: Darel Carrier, Ronnie Clark, Bobby Rascoe, and Jim Richards.
