Plaque includes image of Presley and a brief biography: "Bud Presley make his mark on basketball on the Peninsula as a coach at Menlo College during the '70s. / His gritty Menlo teams won 266 games and five Coast Conference championships during his 12-year tenure there. / On three occasions, his sturdy Oaks played for the California state community college Division II title, winning that crown in 1974. / Presley demanded a brand of intense, man-to-man defense that proved to be Menlo's hallmark through much of the '70s. His Menlo teams led the nation's two-year schools in defense. / In his coaching prime, his behavior on the court was legendary. Vocal and given to uninhibited outbursts, Presley never left any doubts about where he stood. / Through the years, Presley worked for several professional teams, including the Warriors, Rockets and Trail Blazers, as a defensive consultant."
