Former Lamar High School (Meridian, Miss.) basketball coach, Mark Bryan, was found dead Tuesday in the gymnasium at Presbyterian Christian School in Hattiesburg.

Officials say he may have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His death is under investigation.

Eyewitnesses told The Hattiesburg American newspaper that Bryan went to the boys locker room around 8 a.m.

An autopsy was ordered. Results may be available Wednesday.

Bryan had been at Presbyterian Christian for four years and had recently accepted a position as an assistant coach at Jackson Prep.
