Legendary former Michigan coach Bo Schembechler passed away 10 years ago today.

On the anniversary of his death, former Michigan offensive tackle Jake Long posted a heartfelt thank you to Schembechler on Twitter.

Bo is everything that is good about Michigan football. Can't believe it's been 10 years since he passed away...

So humbled, honored and emotional that I was able to know and learn from Coach Schembechler. He was loved and respected by so many...

It's been 10 years but feels like just yesterday that he talked to our team for the last time. THANK YOU Coach. We miss you and love you Go Blue!!

Long was a starter on the 2006 Michigan team that was ranked second in the country and took on No. 1 Ohio State just one day after Schembechler's death.

It is obvious the impact Schembechler still has on the Michigan program to this day.
