Terry Hoeppner

Terry Hoeppner, Indiana's football coached died from cancer today. (Yes, its unbelieveable - I didn't think Indiana still fielded a football program either)

From all reports Hoeppner was apparently pretty well liked. For a bit of local interest, Hoeppner coached at Mullins High School in Mullins from 1976-1978. Hoeppner had recently been replaced by Bill Lynch.

Following is the suprisingly large amount of media coverage this is getting.
