Huskers remember longtime offensive line coach Milt Tenopir

  Mel Tenopir, who retired in 2003, was considered a guru of line play during his 29 years with the Cornhuskers.

Former offensive line coach Milt Tenpoir passed away at the age of 76 Tuesday night after his battle with luekemia. Tenopir was Nebraska's offensive line coach from 1974 - 2002 and the founder of the historic Pipeline.

Nebraska had six Outland Trophy winners as the best interior lineman in college football under Tenopir.

"Milt Tenopir was a great man and it was a blessing for our staff to get to know him over the past couple years," head coach Mike Riley said. "He will be truly missed but the impact he left will always be remembered. Milt will forever be a Husker."

Last Thursday Coach Tenopir was able to make a visit to football practice and was warmly greeted by players and coaches.

Current and former players and coaches shared their remembrances of Coach Tenopir across social media.
