Heaven just got a little louder. RIP Johnny Orr
One of my favorite college coaches has passed away. Godspeed, Johnny Orr!
Johnny Orr revived Iowa State basketball to it’s current state. He is the father of “Hilton Magic”, and is in the hearts of ISU fans all over the world. We lost a shining star, but thanks for the memories, Coach.
John Feinstein wrote a great article on this: Johnny Orr: A coach who could do magic
They had a great video tribute to him at the Northern Illinois game on New Year’s Eve:
There will be a public visitation at Hilton for Johnny’s funeral. How many can say that their funeral had to be held in a public auditorium, to hold all the people?
Leave your memories of Johnny in the comments. We should all share in a life rich in history, as Johnny’s was.
