LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Neil Dougherty, who coached the TCU basketball team for six seasons, has died. He was 50.

His death was announced Friday by the University of Kansas, where he once worked as an assistant. The school said he died Tuesday in Indianapolis.

Dougherty was most recently director of athlete and coach programs for the NCAA's iHoops program, a joint venture with the NBA and the NCAA to promote youth basketball initiatives. The iHoops website said Dougherty died while he was running.

Dougherty also held earlier assistant jobs at Drake, Vanderbilt and South Carolina.
