Indiana U Football Coach Dies
6/19/07, 8:32am
I was so sorry to hear this. I was hoping he would beat the brain cancer but it wasn't to be. Coach Hoeppner came to IU two years ago and it was obvious he was on his way to building the Hoosiers into a national powerhouse. He was a wonderful coach who motivated not through fear and intimidation, but through constructive criticism and positive feedback. Everyone (Players, students, fans) loved him. He even took the time to write my son a personal email once after my son had written him.


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.
