Listen to the Story
If he could see the statue, Woody Hayes would probably say it cost too much.
The coach known for his no-frills approach and conservative game plan brought four national championships to Ohio State.
But those who knew him best say he was much more complicated than that. Hayes was fired in disgrace for punching an opposing player at the 1978 Gator Bowl, but was beloved by OSU fans until his death in 1987. He even spoke at an OSU commencement ceremony in 1986.
