Don Meyer



ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) – Former Northern State University men’s basketball coach Don Meyer is recovering in a Minneapolis-area hospital after having a heart pacemaker implanted.  His wife, Carmen, tells the Aberdeen American News newspaper  that the surgery on Wednesday went well.   Meyer also recently had three heart valves replaced with mechanical ones and had a hole in his heart repaired. His heart problems are related to cancer that doctors discovered after a 2008 car accident that cost Meyer part of his left leg.   Meyer retired from coaching two years ago with an NCAA record 923 victories.
