    Joe Dan Gold dies at age 68

    Gold coached at Mississippi State from 1965 to 1970, with a 51-74 record in five seasons.
    Gold also coached at Paducah Community College and Mercer in the 1970s before going into high school administration in Kentucky.

    He retired just a few years ago where he was the Superintendent of Morgan Co schools.

    Gold was elected into Mississippi State's Athletic Hall of Fame in 1996, and was recognized as an SEC legend in 2003.

    I will post complete arrangements when I get them. I have been told that the funeral services will be at the Morgan Co Elementary School in West Liberty Ky.

    I have known Joe Dan for several years and his wife Rose Marie. He will greatly be missed.

    Joe Dan also coached for awhile at Fleming Co. before becoming a principal. He was the principal at the high school when I went to school there. He was a great man who will be missed by many.

    ^ That's how I knew him; when he was at Fleming County. Not close friends, ran into him at the occasional meeting.

    Prayers to his family.
