Happy Birthday Hayden Fry!
Hawkeye legend Hayden Fry turns 82 today.
The Hall of Fame head coach compiled 143 victories — the most in school history — during his 20 year tenure with the Hawkeyes. He led the Black and Gold to 14 Bowl games (6-7-1), including three Rose Bowl appearances.
Before Fry came to Iowa, the Hawkeyes went 17 years without a winning season.
Not only did he create a winning culture in Iowa City, the legendary coach is also credited for creating several Iowa Hawkeye football traditions that are still in use today.
- The TigerHawk Logo
- Modeling the Iowa uniforms after the Pittsburgh Steelers
- “The Swarm”
- Painting the visitors locker room Pink
Here’s to Coach Fry — Iowa fans are eternally grateful to you for resurrecting Hawkeye football. The Black and Gold wouldn’t be the same without you.
