Legendary coach Pete Carril dies at age 92

Hall of Fame coach and basketball innovator and former Sacramento Kings coach Pete Carril has died at age 92, his family announced Monday.

“We kindly ask that you please respect our privacy at this time as we process our loss and handle necessary arrangements. More information will be forthcoming in the following days,” the Carril family said in a statement released by Princeton University on Monday.

Carril is known for his 30-year tenure as head coach at Princeton, where he mastered an offense that heavily influenced basketball. “The Princeton offense” was predicated on spacing, back door cutting and overall team movement.
