Harold Enarson: The Guy Who Fired Woody

Harold Enarson was the Ohio State President who fired Woody Hayes after Woody threw a punch at Clemson's Charlie Bauman during the 1978 Gator Bowl. Enarson, who passed away last Friday at the age of 87, once said that he knew that he'd always be remembered as the guy who fired Woody.

Despite a distinguished academic career during which he served as President of both Cleveland State University and The Ohio State University, a quick glance at Enarson's obituary proves that he was right.

Harold Enarson, isn't he the guy who shot Liberty Valance?

I told them it was really Tom Doniphon who shot Valance, but they didn't care.
