Wake Forest chose Dino Gaudio to replace the late Skip Prosser as new head basketball coach. Gaudio was the associate head coach at Wake Forest since 2002. This is Gaudio's first head coaching job since leaving Loyola of Maryland in 2000.
Gaudio had this statement:
"From this tragedy ... is going to be one of the great success stories," Gaudio said. "We're going to have a storybook season. We've got to make this thing like a Shakespearean play, where they're writing books about what happens, from the bad to the good."
