Former Michigan co-captain dies
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Tom Coyle, a co-captain for Michigan's football team in 1972, has died. He was 62.
The school announced Coyle's death Wednesday. He died Tuesday at his home in Tampa, Fla.
Coyle was a co-captain with Randy Logan in 1972 and a three-time letterwinner for the Wolverines. Michigan went 30-3 in those three seasons. Coyle started 32 games at right guard during that span.
Fritz Seyferth, a teammate of Coyle's, called him a great leader who took coach Bo Schembechler's message to heart.
