Kansas State University, where Winter first coached, said he died Wednesday in Manhattan, Kansas."I learned so much from Coach Winter. He was a pioneer and a true student of the game,'' Michael Jordan said in a statement emailed to the Chicago Tribune. "His triangle offense was a huge part of our six championships with the Bulls. He was a tireless worker. Tex was always focused on details and preparation and a great teacher. I was lucky to play for him. My condolences to his family.''
Winter began his coaching career as an assistant under Jack Gardner at Kansas State in 1947, before a two-year stint at Marquette, where he became the youngest head coach in major college basketball at the age of 30.
He later returned to Kansas State, where he served as head coach for 15 years and led the Wildcats to two Final Four appearances in six NCAA tournament trips.
