One of the links to the University of San Francisco's glory days of basketball passed away.
While at USF, Dailey became the all-time single-season scoring leader in Bay Area Division I basketball history. But his playing days, both in the NCAA and the NBA, were marred by personal demons that the talented player just couldn't seem to shake.
In 1982, he pled guilty to an attempted assault charge on a USF nursing student and in the NBA he was suspended twice for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
He is survived by his son Quintin Jr., who currently plays basketball at Eastern Michigan University and his daughter Qunci.
"Tomorrow ain't promised ... RIP Quintin Dailey Sr. I love you dad ...," Quntin Jr. posted Tuesday on Twitter. "And here I was thinking he was invicible."
Quintin Dailey was 49-years-old.
