Hall of Fame
With a victory over Wisconsin in 1975, Ohio State University football coach Wayne Woodrow “Woody” Hayes became the fourth winningest coach in the history of college football with 208 victories, surpassed only by Amos Alonzo Stagg, Glenn “Pop” Warner and Paul “Bear” Bryant.
Before the start of the 1975 season, Hayes’ 25th at Ohio State, he had amassed a phenomenal 169 wins, 51 losses and eight ties as head coach of the Buckeyes, including three national championships, ten Big Ten titles and seven Rose Bowl appearances. Hayes has coached two Heisman Trophy winners and forty-five first team All Americans. He was named “College Coach of the Year” in 1957 and runner-up twice.
Columbus is extremely proud of a man who has gained great honor as an outstanding coach, dedicated teacher and unselfish friend of past and present Ohio State players.
