Husker Legend Milt Tenopir Has Died

September 27, 2016

Husker legend and former Nebraska offensive line coach Milt Tenopir has passed away following a prolonged battle with leukemia according to multiple reports. Mike Cavanaugh, Nebraska’s current offensive line coach, shared the news on Twitter.

Tenopir was Nebraska’s offensive line coach for 29 years before retiring in 2003. He coached three national championship teams and helped lead the Huskers to a 295-63-2 record during that time. He coached all-time great linemen that included Dave Rimington, Dean Steinkuhler, Brenden Stai and many more. That included 21 total All-Americans and 11 academic All-Americans.

The Huskers invited Tenopir to practice last week, honoring him with hand shakes and hugs. Tenopir was 76.
