OPSU Community Shocked by Death of Football Coach
12/06/2010
 

Goodwell, Okla.—Mike Wyatt, head football coach at Oklahoma Panhandle State University, passed away early Sunday morning of an apparent heart attack. He was 55 years old.

 

Speaking on behalf of the University, school president Dr. Dave Bryant said he was shocked and saddened by Wyatt's passing.

 

An OPSU graduate, Wyatt had a successful coaching career at the high school and collegiate levels, and also earned many awards and honors coaching Arena football in this country and also in the European professional league. He was an assistant coach at OPSU in the early 1980s and returned to his alma mater as the head coach in 2007.

 

In the spring of this year, the members of the Aggie team set a goal to have their first winning season since 2004, and under Wyatt's leadership, they attained that goal with a 6-5 record.

 

Wyatt is survived by a daughter, Brandi Wyatt.
