Former Purdue head coach Joe Tiller has passed away.
Former Purdue head coach Joe Tiller, the winningest coach in the history of Boilermaker football, has passed away. Purdue's Twitter account announced the news on Saturday morning, offering condolences to Tiller's family.
Tiller was reported to be having "health issues" back in July - and one of his former assistants, Texas A&M's Kevin Sumlin - told reporters that he wasn't "doing too well" recently.
Tiller coached at both Wyoming and Purdue. He posted an 87-62 record with the Boilermakers.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Tiller's family and friends - as well as the Wyoming and Purdue communities at this time.
