    Indiana football coach Terry Hoepnner passes away

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=2908831

    Indiana football coach Terry Hoeppner, who was undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments after two brain surgeries in 18 months, has died, according to newspaper reports out of Indiana.

    The Indianapolis Star and Herald Times in Bloomington, Ind., reported that Hoepper, 59, died Tuesday morning.

    The school announced last week that assistant Bill Lynch would replace Hoeppner for the 2007 season while Hoeppner underwent treatments.

    Lynch, who is offensive coordinator and assistant head coach, filled in for Hoeppner during his absences.

    Hoeppner, who was 48-25 in six years at Miami, was hired by Indiana after the 2004 season and posted a 9-14 record with the Hoosiers. In December, Hoeppner signed a two-year contract extension through June 2011.

    Hoeppner and his wife, Jane, have three children -- Drew, Amy, and Allison. The Hoeppners also have four grandchildren -- Tucker and Spencer Fox and Tate and Quinn Balcam.
    Sad. My thoughts and prayers are with his friends, family, and those who knew him in Indiana and Miami of Ohio.

    Coach Hoeppner was a man that I was proud to have represent Miami. He stood for all the good things in not only football, but in life. Like he preached to his teams, he never stopped fighting. Sad, Sad news and my condolences to his family.

    He joins his mentor Randy Walker in passing away much, much too early.

    Appropriately, it is raining in Bloomington right now.

    They guy brought a lot of excitement and optimism to IU- it's sad, sad, sad to see him go at such young age. The athletic department was very tight lipped about his condition; I would be surprised if anyone outside the program, or outside Greenspan's office for that matter, really knew how bad Hep was.

    He will be missed.

    I called a friend of mine who plays on the D-line for Indiana and he seemed pretty shaken up about the news.

    Sad, sad day.

    He always sounded like a good person when I heard him on the radio. Sad to see anyone go at such a young age.

    My prayers are with his family.

    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Very sad news.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Horrible news, especially for his family and friends. Additionally, as an IU alum, my hopes for a Rose Bowl are now fading again.

    Do you care to comment on who it was? I can't imagine the pain that team is going through right now.

    I have been miserable all day and I am just a diehard IU fan.

    This just doesn't seem fair.

    Very sad day. I always enjoyed our games (Marshall) against Miami and thought he was a class act all the way. RIP.

    Very sad news. I saw that they had someone else to coach this year and I was just hoping that would be on an interim basis so the news of his death was a shock. Prayers to his family and the IU & Miami community.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. As a Miami alum who was there for the prime years years before he left for IU, I will always appreciate what he did for the university.
