TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Tulsa police say Nolan Richardson III -- the son of former Arkansas and Tulsa basketball coach Nolan Richardson -- has been found dead in his home.
Officer Jason Willingham said Monday that the younger Richardson's wife found him in a chair in their south Tulsa home about 3 p.m. Sunday. A cause of death wasn't immediately released but Willingham said the 47-year-old's death appears to be from natural causes.
Nolan Richardson III, known as "Notes," served as an assistant to his father at the University of Arkansas and later as head coach at Tennessee State.
Tennessee State Athletics Director Teresa Phillips said in a statement she was saddened to hear of Nolan Richardson III' s death.
He was head coach there from 2000 to 2003 and compiled a 23-41 record.
