Early Life: Sean Tuohy was born Sean Albro Tuohy on November 23, 1959, in New Orleans, Louisiana. He is the son of Mida and Edward Tuohy, and his father (also known as "Skeets") coached basketball at the Isidore Newman School, which named their gymnasium after him. Sean graduated from that school, and though he was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds baseball team, he decided to attend college on a basketball scholarship at the University of Mississippi. Tuohy joined the Phi Delta Theta fraternity and played on the Ole Miss Rebels, leading the team to the SEC Men's Basketball Tournament in 1981. He was named All-SEC all four seasons that he played on the team and set a record for single season assists (260) in the Southeastern Conference. Sean was drafted by the New Jersey Nets in 1982, but he chose to play basketball overseas instead and later returned to the country to be by his father's side during the end of his life; Edward passed away from cancer in September 1982. Sean was inducted into the Ole Miss Sports Hall of Fame in 1998.
