JAY MCAULEY WINS 2022 AWARD

NEW ORLEANS, LA -- Wofford coach Jay McAuley has been named the 2022 recipient of the Skip Prosser Man of the Year Award, which honors those who not only achieve success on the basketball court but who display moral integrity off the floor as well.

McAuley just completed his third season as the Terriers’ head coach. He replaced his former boss Mike Young prior to the 2018-19 season and has guided the program to a 53-38 record during his tenure, including 19 wins this season.

McAuley, 38, also worked for highly regarded coaches Niko Medved and Chris Holtmann before he joined Young’s staff as associate head coach in 2017.


The Skip Prosser Man of the Year award honors those who not only achieve success on the basketball court but who display moral integrity off the floor as well. In six years with the Deacons, Prosser posted a 126-68 record. For his career, he was 291-146 in 14 seasons including six as the head coach at Xavier and one year at Loyola (Md.).

At Wake Forest, Prosser's teams averaged 21 wins per season while playing in arguably the nation's most difficult league, the Atlantic Coast Conference. Prosser won 100 games at an ACC school quicker than all but two coaches in the 55-year history of the conference. He coached NBA stars Chris Paul and Josh Howard, led the Demon Deacons to the first No. 1 national ranking in school history and earned ACC Coach of the Year honors in 2003.

Prosser passed away of an apparent heart attack on July 26, 2007 in his office at Wake Forest. He had just returned from his morning jog.
