Woody Hayes statue goes up on OSU campus

8-foot bronze statue of coach to be placed outside athletic center

COLUMBUS — An 8-foot-tall bronze statue of legendary football coach Woody Hayes is going up outside the Ohio State University athletic center that bears his name.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the 800-pound likeness of the longtime coach has been in the works for five years. It's scheduled to be affixed to a granite base later today outside the Woody Hayes Athletic Center on campus.

The statue and other tributes come in recognition of the 100th anniversary of Hayes’ birth on Thursday.

The bronze likeness was done by artist Alan Cottrill of Zanesville.

Hayes coached at Ohio State for 28 seasons. He died in 1987.
