Comments

Two Miami players were drafted into the National Football League: quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, left as a junior without a degree with a year of college eligibility remaining and was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round, #11 overall, and guard Jacob Bell, taken by the Tennessee Titans in the fifth round, #138 overall.[1] Roethlisberger's #11 selection was the highest ever draft pick for a player from Miami.[2]

Awards

The Columbus Dispatch named Hoeppner "Ohio College Coach of the Year."[3] The 2003 team as a whole earned the American Football Coaches Association's "Academic Achievement Honor" for achieving a graduation rate over 70%.[4]
