NSU Coach Don Meyer Subject of Upcoming Film

Northern State University

Three months after Don Meyer's death, filming begins in Nashville in August on a new movie about the former Northern State University basketball coach. Over the course of a 38-year career spent mostly at Lipscomb University in Nashville and NSU in Aberdeen, Meyer had over 900 wins, making him one of college basketball’s most successful coaches.

Meyer was diagnosed with cancer in 2008 after a serious car accident that led to the amputation of a leg, but he continued to coach from a wheelchair until his retirement four years ago. “My Many Sons” is the working title of the film about Coach Meyer. The idea for the movie came from actor/producer Casey Bond who played pitcher Chad Bradford in “Moneyball.” Bond also played baseball at Lipscomb University before spending a couple years in the minor leagues with the San Francisco Giants organization. Bond joined Dakota Midday and discussed why he's making a movie about Coach Meyer.
