MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Former Cincinnati women’s basketball coach J. Kelley Hall has died at age 51 of a heart attack at his South Carolina home.

The McMillan-Small Funeral Home in Myrtle Beach confirmed that Hall died Thursday.

Hall was fired from Cincinnati in 2009 after two losing seasons.

Before that, he was head coach at Louisiana-Lafayette from 2002-2007 and was named 2005 Sun Belt Coach of the Year. Louisiana-Lafayette officials say he is the winningest coach in its program’s history.

He accumulated more wins in five seasons (86) than the team won in all of the 1990s (45).

Funeral services will be held Monday in Myrtle Beach.
