Former Ohio State football coach Earle Bruce dies at 87

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Earle Bruce embraced the difficult task of following his mentor, Woody Hayes, as Ohio State's head football coach. In his later years, he became a much-loved patriarch of the program he helped build.

Bruce died in Columbus at the age of 87, according to a statement released by his daughters through Ohio State on Friday. He'd been suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

Bruce had a record of 81-26-1 as head coach at Ohio State from 1979-87. He took over under most unusual and challenging circumstances, hired after the revered Hayes was fired for punching a Clemson player in the 1978 Gator Bowl. Bruce could not meet Hayes' lofty standards and was never quite embraced by Buckeyes fans the way Hayes was, but even after being fired and moving on to other jobs, he never lost his passion for Ohio State football.
