The Big Ten lost one of its own today in New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner. The Boss earned his Master's degree at Ohio State from 1954-55 and served as a grad assistant under Buckeyes legendary football coach Woody Hayes. Steinbrenner went on to serve as an assistant at both Northwestern (1955-56) and Purdue (1956-57) before entering the shipping business.

Although he made his name as a baseball owner, his roots in football were obvious with how he ran the Yankees. RIP.
