Former players and coaching colleagues were among mourners at funeral services for former Miami (Ohio) basketball coach Charlie Coles, the school’s career victory leader.

Hundreds of people attended the visitation and funeral services Thursday at Millett Hall on the Miami campus in southwest Ohio.

Former Miami stars Devin Davis, Damon Frierson, Kenny Hayes, Jermaine Henderson, Jason Grunkemeyer and Greg Knox were pallbearers. A Miami spokeswoman said President David Hodge and former coach Darrell Hedric were among the speakers celebrating Coles’ life at the nearly three-hour services.

Photos of the coach with family, friends and players were flashed on a video screen.

Coles died last Friday in Oxford. He was 71.

Coles is survived by wife Delores, son Chris, daughter Mary Bennett and four grandchildren.
