Support for Coach Nelson Haggerty's Family

On behalf of the UNT Athletics and the Mean Green Men's Basketball Program, this fund is established to support the Haggerty family.  Coach Nelson Haggerty went home to be with his Lord and Savior after a single-car accident in the early hours of April 16, 2021.  "Coach Hagg was many things to so many people - an accomplished coach, role model, athlete, friend, mentor, son, brother, uncle, husband, and father. As our community mourns his loss, we know that the ripple effect of Hagg's legacy goes beyond Denton, TX - a testament to the incredible life that he lived. "

Your generous donations will be used to support the family's needs during this tragedy and establish a college fund for Nelson and Krissie's four kids.  Other ways to support include:  Meal Train for the Haggerty Family 

Haggerty joined the Mean Green in 2019 after eight seasons as Midwestern State's head coach and is Baylor's all-time leader in assists playing for the Bears from 1991-95.

Mean Green Basketball and the Haggerty family thank you for your support.
