On November 17, 2006, former University of Michigan football coach Glenn “Bo” Schembechler collapsed during the taping of a Michigan-Ohio State pregame show at WXYZ-TV in Southfield and pronounced dead a couple hours later at Providence Hospital. He was the winningest coach Wolverine football has ever had, posting a record of 194-48-5 over his 21 seasons and winning at least a share of the Big Ten title 13 times. He never had a losing season as a head coach and went 11-9-1 against the hated Buckeyes.
