Early this morning, former Purdue head coach Joe Tiller passed away at age 74. What Tiller left behind is something every coach dreams of – an incredible, and undisputable legacy.
What coach Tiller was able to accomplish in West Lafayette is nothing short of amazing. He’s the winningest coach in program history, going 87-62 including a share of the Big ten title and Rose Bowl berth in 2000, and also trips to 10 bowl games in 12 seasons. He did it all while building the program the right way as well, with integrity and class.
In an effort to pay homage to coach Tiller’s legacy, Purdue released this tribute video.
Please enjoy and join us in praying for Tiller’s family, and those whose lives he touched through coaching.
