LOS ANGELES (AP) _ The daughter of ''Coach'' television star Jerry Van Dyke was found hanged in her home, authorities said.
Kelly Jean Van Dyke-Nance, 33, was found hanging by a rope Sunday night in the bedroom of a suburban North Hollywood apartment she shared with her husband, Jack Nance, said police Lt. Ron LaRue.
The body was discovered by family friend Lisa Loring, LaRue said.
''There was some information that she had spoken of suicide to her husband,'' LaRue said.
No suicide note was found, and no other details were disclosed.
The death was listed as a suicide, said coroner's office spokesman Bob Dambacher.
Van Dyke co-stars with Craig T. Nelson on the ABC comedy ''Coach,'' featuring Van Dyke as befuddled assistant coach Luther Van Dam.
Van Dyke couldn't immediately be reached through ABC spokesman Jasper Vance. Van Dyke's role on the show earned him an Emmy nomination last year and helped him emerge from the shadow of brother, Dick Van Dyke.
