Men's Basketball Head Coach

The late George E. "Skip" Prosser enjoyed a 15-year career at Xavier as a head basketball coach and assistant coach. Prosser led Xavier to four NCAA Tournament appearances and two NIT berths in seven years as head coach. He is in second place on Xavier's all-time wins list for head coaches, having won 148 games in seven seasons at the helm (1994-2001). The only man ahead of Prosser on the list, Pete Gillen, had Prosser as his top assistant for 180 of his 202 wins from 1985-1993.

Prosser, the 1996-97 Basketball Times Mideast Coach of the Year and NABC District 10 Coach of the Year, was 148-65 (.695) in seven years as head coach at Xavier University and his overall head coaching record was 291-146 (.667), which included stops at Loyola College and Wake Forest. Prosser led Xavier to the 1998 Atlantic 10 Conference Championship and XU captured back-to-back Atlantic 10 West Division Regular Season Championships in 1997 and 1998.

Prosser's first Xavier team won the 1995 Midwestern Collegiate Conference Regular Season Championship with a perfect 14-0 mark, XU's last year in the MCC before Prosser led XU into its first A-10 season in 1995-96. Prosser was Xavier's selection for men's basketball for the inaugural Atlantic 10 Legends celebration in 2013.
