ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI) – A friend of the late former SLU men's basketball coach Rick Majerus gave FOX2 exclusive access to a voicemail he left.

"The voicemail reveals what kind of person Rick was,' his friend Kim Tucci said.

Tucci is a SLU supporter and has known Majerus for years.

"He was just a great guy and in the voicemail you can tell that," he said.

In the voicemail Majerus talks about honoring another former SLU basketball coach.

"It was always about helping others with Rick," Tucci said.

Majerus died over the weekend.

He had a well documented history with health problems.

"We knew he was sick, but this is still very hard," Tucci said. "I did not know that message would be the last I got from him."
