SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -Former Ohio State coach John Cooper remembers when he was a young assistant going to coaching conventions hoping to catch a glimpse of Woody Hayes, Ara Parseghian, Bo Schembechler and Bear Bryant.
He joins those coaching greats Saturday as he and 21 other former coaches and players are enshrined into the College Football Hall of Fame. Cooper, who also coached at Arizona State and Tulsa, said it's a great feeling to be associated with the coaches he once just wanted to see. He said being enshrined is one of the best days of his life.
Others enshrined Saturday include former UCLA quarterback Troy Aikman, former Oklahoma State tailback Thurman Thomas, former Florida linebacker Wilber Marshall and former Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz.
