One of a select, fortunate few who probably enjoyed what he did for a living more than he would have enjoyed his years of retirement. One of my favorite baseball coaches of all time.

No doubt a very sad day on the 40 acres, but also around the nation. He was one of the most interesting people I have ever met in my life. I will always remember standing around the tunnel during BP listening to him seamlessly interchange talking baseball and life.

RIP Coach

Oh, man. So sad. Heard he was hospitalized, but didn't see this coming.

Baseball Legend. Recognized what a hard game baseball is, and to win more than anyone speaks volumes. His "win every inning" philosophy will endure.

This. Guys like him don't continue coaching because they have to, its their passion and life's work. He obviously had a great life doing what he loved. I hope I can work as long as he did and enjoy every minute of it as much as he did. Very passionate coach, sometimes his temperament appeared rough around the edges, but he cared about his players and his program. RIP coach.

That is a sad deal. Enjoyed his wit and his blatant directness. He could be rough on his players but he was a brilliant tactician at times. He knew the game of baseball. He will be missed. He was a legend.

Great man

He made a difference in this world

If you’ve ever watch the movie For Love of the Game with Kevin Costner

Augie plays the Yankees coach at
the end of the movie

He had a two word line in the movie

“Wreck it”

He became friends with Costner

He will be missed

It was always fun when the horns would play the aggies when he and mark Johnson were the coaches. They had some good battles between them when they played each other
I think both coaches respected each other
