JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. - Dave Walker, who coached East Tennessee State's track program for about half a century and was inducted into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame, has died. He was 82.

Keith Biddix, manager at Tetrick Funeral & Cremation Services, said Monday night that Walker died Saturday at Johnson City Medical Center.

Walker coached East Tennessee State's track program from 1963 until his retirement in 2012. He was a member of the ETSU Hall of Fame and the U.S. East Tennessee State named its home track after Walker in 1995.
