A memorial service for the late former UC Irvine men’s basketball coach Bill Mulligan is planned for Feb. 7 at 10:30 a.m. at the Bren Events Center on the UCI campus.

Mulligan, who died Tuesday at the age of 79, was the Anteaters’ head coach from 1980 through 1991 and won 163 games in his tenure.

He also had head-coaching stops at Long Beach Poly High, Riverside Community College, Saddleback College and Irvine Valley College.

In lieu of flowers, the family is accepting donations for the continuous needs of the disabled, Brian Mulligan, Bill’s son, said.

Checks can be made out and sent to Dorothy Mulligan, San Clemente Villas by the Sea, 660 Camino de Los Mares, Apt. 224, San Clemente, CA, 92673.
