Former Tiger Coach Bill Lynch Speaks at College Football Hall of Fame
May 20, 2008
May 20, 2008, Greencastle, Ind. - "Just like the great Johnny Cash, (Bill) Lynch has been everywhere -- in Indiana anyway," notes a story by South Bend, Indiana CBS affiliate WSBT-TV. "For over 30 years, one way or another, Lynch has coached football in the state of Indiana -- at Butler, Ball State, DePauw and now at IU. His next destination is to get the Hoosiers to the next level."
Lynch, who coached the Tigers to an 8-2 record in 2004, was on hand for today's Gridiron Legends Luncheon at the College Football Hall of Fame. Lynch's team at Indiana University was 7-5 for the 2007 season and the Hoosiers received receive their first bowl bid since 1993.
"Now we've just got to keep going," Lynch said today. "We've got a very favorable schedule, we've got eight home games for the first time in Indiana history so we've just got to build upon last year."
