News broke on Monday, February 27, that basketball legend Terry Holland died at the age of 80 after a battle with Alzheimer’s. Although Holland is connected to multiple roles within basketball and athletics at Davidson and East Carolina University, he is most well known as the head coach of the Virginia men’s basketball team from 1974-1990.

He retired at Virginia as the winningest head coach in program history (326-173), a record that stood until current head coach Tony Bennett passed that mark this season. Holland led the Cavaliers to two Final Fours (1981 and 1984) and coached the iconic Ralph Sampson.

After Virginia, Holland served as the athletic director of Davidson, Virginia and ECU. While Holland is known for his basketball success, he is widely regarded as an incredible person off the court.

As the news of his passing spread, well-wishers from across the college basketball world emerged.
