Former Missouri football coach Woody Widenhofer died Sunday at the age of 77.
Ryan Widenhofer, the former coach’s son, told the Nashville Tennessean that his father suffered a minor stroke earlier this month, then while recovering in the hospital suffered a more severe stroke Saturday and died Sunday.
"He had the biggest heart of any man I knew and loved his children unconditionally and had a lot of people that cared for him," Ryan Widenhofer told the Nashville newspaper.
