Terry Hoeppner: 1947-2007

Sad news for college football today.

Orson's got the news up.  And now ESPN has the story.

Indiana football coach Terry Hoeppner died Tuesday of complications from a brain tumor, a university spokesman said. He was 59.

Hoeppner, who had two brain surgeries in the past 18 months, missed nearly four months on medical leave. He died at 6:50 a.m. at Bloomington Hospital, said J.D. Campbell, the school's sports information director.

"Coach died due to complications from the brain tumor for which he had been treated surgically and therapeutically over the past 18 months, " Indiana University team physician Dr. Larry Rink said. "His family was at his side."
