TULSA, Oklahoma -

Police in Tulsa say Nolan Richardson III -- the son of former Arkansas and Tulsa basketball coach Nolan Richardson -- has been found dead in his home.

Officer Jason Willingham said Monday that Richardson III's wife found her husband dead in a chair in their south Tulsa home about 3 p.m. Sunday. A cause of death was not immediately released but Willingham said the 47-year-old's death appears to be due to natural causes.

Richardson III was known as "Notes" and served as an assistant to his father at the University of Arkansas and later as head coach at Tennessee State.
