INDIANA FOOTBALL COACH TERRY HOEPPNER PASSES AWAY


Here is the press release from Indiana University . . .

———————————–

Indiana University football coach Terry Hoeppner, 59, passed away Tuesday
morning at 6:50 a.m. at Bloomington Hospital following a lengthy illness.

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

Hoeppner was named IU’s 26th head football coach on December 17, 2004 and he
and his coaching staff have worked tirelessly to generate enthusiasm and
passion for the program since his arrival in Bloomington.

“Terry’s fight was courageous and will serve as an inspiration to those who
have known him,” said IU Director of Athletics Rick Greenspan. “This is a
truly sad day for our community and all of our thoughts and prayers are with
the Hoeppner family and those whose lives he has touched.”

Further details regarding services are pending at this time, and will be
forthcoming once they are determined.
