RIP coach Sonny Allen. Our relationship started in 1982 when Coach was recruiting me. A true friend and mentor, I learned so much from him. Sonny played a huge role in “coaching the coaches” and self scouting our Nevada teams. “The Fastbreak Coach” leaves a basketball legacy pic.twitter.com/0nMk5eQfEm

Very sad to hear of the passing of Sonny Allen. He was nothing but a kind and gentle man to me every time we saw each other. Truly lost a legend.

Sonny Allen, a humble man who won a national title and build the foundation for @ODUMensHoops success, passed away this morning. He was also a social warrior — he integrated Virginia college basketball. @ODUSports @ODU @ODUAlumni @HerdMBB @SMU @ODUSEES https://t.co/OPbj3oZaUi

Former Marshall star and freshman team head coach Sonny Allen has passed away according to Old Dominion University. He won a Division II national title there…was an innovative coach and an extremely nice man

To the school’s first ever NCAA Tournament appearances in 1984 and 1985. He was a two-time Big Sky Coach of the Year and was inducted into the Nevada Athletics Hall of Fame in 2005. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
