The Coaches’ Caravan provides the Minnesota Athletic Department a wonderful opportunity to reach out to their out-state fan base. Traveling on this leg of the caravan are basketball coaches Tubby Smith and Pam Borton, women’s hockey coach Laura Halldorson and Associate Athletics Director Tom Wistrcill.
A highlight of the outing in Hermantown was having Gopher football alum Robin Tellor, a 1963 graduate and an offensive guard on the 1960 national champion squad, in attendance.
A lively crowd of over 100 Golden Gopher faithful greeted the Caravan in Grand Rapids. Among the guests were Bob Sandberg, the Gophers’ quarterback who captained the squad in 1946, and Jon Maturi, the brother of Minnesota Athletic Director Joel Maturi.
The largest crowd of the Northern Minnesota, including a group of local basketball campers, greeted the Golden Gopher contingent at The Lodge.
