The seven-part series looks beyond Kruger's 479-304 career college record and how he's revived programs at Kansas State, Florida, Illinois and UNLV.
Kruger has been to only one Final Four and one Elite Eight. He's had six losing seasons, although three were building a fledging Texas-Pan American program to start his career.
He's 14-13 in NCAA Tournaments. But considering Kruger usually inherits programs in decline, a .612 career winning percentage is pretty remarkable.
One constant when interviewing more than 30 people for the series was Kruger's impact goes far beyond basketball.
“He's a wonderful human being,” said Danny Beard, his roommate at Kansas State. “There is no dark side. He's a high moral guy, as kind a person as you'll ever meet. He gives to the community not only monetarily but with his time. You can't not like Lonnie.”
