Milt Tenopir was Nebraska’s offensive line coach from 1974 to 2002. Nebraska’s 90s run is legendary, and Tenopir wrote a book about his coaching philosophy, including diagrams of the plays the Huskers ran out of the I Formation.
It’s quite the book.
It’s “Run The Damn Ball” guy’s fantasy.

I Have Books Out!
On August 21st, 2015, I unexpectedly dropped dead of a widowmaker heart attack. I was shocked five times on the way to the hospital with no response. I was shocked two more times in the ER. I was dead for over 20 minutes. A stent was placed, and I was induced into a coma. In January 2016, I received a second stent and in June I was diagnosed with an anoxic brain injury.
I wrote a book about death and recovery. The title, “Been Dead, Never Been To Europe” reflects the ironic nature of life: what happens versus what we want to happen.

“Been Dead, Never Been To Europe” is available world-wide here.
My second book is directed towards heart attack survivors. “Manage Your Damage - Heart Attack Survivor” is based on the strategies I used to recover my life.
