 BEREA, Ohio (AP) -Bob Packard, the winningest football coach at Baldwin-Wallace, has died, the school said Monday. He was 64.
Packard, who coached current Ohio State coach Jim Tressel, died Saturday of a heart attack, Baldwin-Wallace said.
A 1965 graduate of the school, Packard played for and was an assistant under College Football Hall of Fame coach Lee Tressel before taking over for him in 1981 as Tressel's hand-picked successor.
Among the players he helped coach was Tressel's son, Jim, who played quarterback at Baldwin-Wallace before going on to win four I-AA national titles at Youngstown State and the 2002 Bowl Championship Series national championship at Ohio State.
As a head coach, Packard went 156-54-2. In 37 years as a player, assistant and head coach, Packard helped Baldwin-Wallace win 258 games, 58 percent of the school's total football victories. He retired in 2001.
``He touched many, many lives in his illustrious coaching career and will be dearly missed,'' Jim Tressel said in a statement. ``The Tressel family, specifically, lost a much loved friend who had an important impact on our lives.''
Packard is survived by his wife, Ann Marie, and daughters Jennifer and Beth.
