A movie about the life of Lipscomb University men's basketball coach Don Meyer will be filmed in Tennessee.
The state Department of Economic and Community Development has approved a $175,000 grant for the film titled "My Many Sons" to be shot in Nashville.
Meyer, one of the winningest coaches in college basketball history, died in May of cancer. He was 69.
He led his teams into the playoffs 19 times and compiled a 923-324 record during his 38-year career, most of which he spent at Lipscomb in Nashville and at Northern State University in South Dakota.
The movie will explore Meyer's career as a basketball coach, as well as focus on the lives he influenced both on and off the court.
The film is tentatively scheduled for release in early April.
