OVC to induct Spoo
into Hall of Fame

Former Eastern Illi-nois head football coach Bob Spoo has been elected into the Ohio Valley Conference Hall of Fame.
He will be officially inducted at the annual OVC Honors Brunch June 1 in Nashville.
The OVC Hall of Fame was organized in 1977 with the intent of honoring the coaches, administrators, faculty and staff who have been associated with the OVC for at least five years and provided extensive and outstanding service to the conference.
Spoo wrapped up 25 years (1987-2011) as head football coach at Eastern Illinois this past season, finishing his career with 144 career victories, nine FCS Playoff appearances and three OVC Coach of the Year awards.
