Lou Tully, San Jose State's first and only women's water polo head coach, died Tuesday due to complications from cancer treatment. He was 70.

Tully had a 250-245 record. The 2014 season, which begins in January, was to be his 18th at SJSU. His teams were ranked in the top-10 nationally 12 times. The 2001 and 2011 Spartans finished fifth in the country.

Tully was a SJSU graduate and played for the men's teams from 1962-65.

His first coaching position was at Menlo Junior College in 1966, and he also founded the San Jose Splash in the 1990's, a club team for local junior women's players.

Terms of the agreement include the ability for the San Jose Giants to sell stadium naming rights and continue to pursue on-site development options to fund capital improvements at the ballpark.

The San Jose Giants have been a Class A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants since 1988, currently the longest affiliation in the California League.
