Terry Hoeppner won nine games as Indiana's coach, but he will always be remembered as the program's rock.

The man hired to revive Indiana's foundering football program in 2004 -- and had a 3-ton limestone boulder placed in the north end zone of Memorial Stadium -- died of complications of a brain tumor Tuesday morning at Bloomington Hospital with his family at his side. He was 59.

Hoeppner waged his personal battle with the same zeal that made him a popular coach.
