OXFORD (AP) - Legendary football coach Paul Brown is being honored with a statue being unveiled today at Ohio's Miami University, his alma mater.
Brown's is the ninth statue in the "Cradle of Coaches" Plaza that honors the highly successful coaches with Miami roots who inspired the nickname.
Brown attended Miami and was the team's quarterback before beginning a highly successful high school, college and pro football coaching career. Among his coaching jobs were those at The Ohio State University and heading the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals.
Miami University says Brown's widow, Mary, will help unveil the statue that caps a $1 million-plus project completing the coaches plaza.
