WSU women’s basketball director of strength and conditioning David Lang died Saturday afternoon, according to a WSU news release.

Lang died of a heart attack, according to a Facebook post by his son Joe Lang.

Lang worked for the athletic department for the past 20 years.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Lang family,” said WSU Director of Athletics Patrick Chun in the release. “David was beloved and respected by our entire department. He impacted and positively changed the lives of countless Washington State student-athletes during his two decades of service. He will forever remain in our hearts and will be dearly missed.”

Lang worked with the women’s basketball and men’s and women’s golf programs.

Due to his death, Sunday’s women’s basketball game against Stanford University has been cancelled.
