Ex-Gonzaga basketball coach Dan Fitzgerald, who died Tuesday night, was remembered in newspapers across the country. There were numerous worthy tributes to the man who entertained us with his stories and impressed us with his limitless generosity and compassion for anyone lucky enough to have met him.
Here’s the best of the best: John Blanchette’s column, and remarks from some of those closest to Fitz. Elsewhere, Ray Ratto was spot-on here, the Seattle Times, A.P. (via the Tacoma paper) and Kitsap Sun.
Back later with some notes and more on Pepperdine.
