Tiller d ied at 74 on Saturday. He amassed 87-62 record during his tenure with the Boilermakers, which lasted from 1997 to 2008.
Purdue coach Jeff Brohm commented at length on Tiller’s passing in his Monday press conference:
“I remember growing up and watching the Purdue teams play in his days, and it was an exciting brand of football. It was a little bit different than maybe some of the other teams in the Big Ten and they found a way to win. I think that his blue-collar approach, working hard to improve his team, to find ways to win, anyway or avenue he can, doing things the right way, treating people with respect, demanding respect of his players and vice versa, then giving it back; I think he was really a legend in the coaching profession, and he’s somebody that everyone should try to mold themselves after.
