COLUMBUS, Ohio – The accomplishments of legendary Hall of Fame coach Paul Brown – on the high school level in Ohio at Massillon Washington, on the collegiate level at Ohio State University and professionally with Cleveland and Cincinnati – will be recognized during a special presentation at the 83rd annual Ohio State University football coaches clinic, set for April 10-12 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

This year’s coaching clinic will serve as “A Tribute to the Great State of Ohio Football” with keynote speeches from some of the state’s best, including Cincinnati Bengals’ coach Marvin Lewis, new Cleveland Browns’ coach Mike Pettine and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer.

The tribute to Brown will take place prior to Lewis’ speaking to the assembled coaches at 8:10 p.m. Thursday, April 10. Brown won six state championships while compiling an 80-8-2 record at Massillon Washington. He led the Buckeyes for three years, including to the first national championship in school history, in 1942. And as coach of the Browns and the Bengals, Brown won seven league titles in 25 seasons, including NFL championships in 1950, 1954 and 1955.

Also honored during the clinic will be the all-time winningest high school coach in state history, Bob Lutz, who won 381 games in 39 years at Ironton High School, and the all-time winningest coach (by percentage) in college football history, Larry Kehres, who went 332-24-3 (.929) in 27 years at Division III Mt. Union and won 11 national championships.
