Longtime ESPN Football Commentator Beano Cook Dies At Age 81
Published October 11, 2012
On Twitter, many took time to offer their memories of Cook. FoxSportsOhio.com’s Pat McManamon wrote, “Beano Cook never forgot a name or person. Could call him once a year and he'd remember your college, your family, and he'd always ask. RIP.” ESPN VP/Communications Mike Soltys: "A great one has passed. In the 80s, Beano Cook took this kid publicist under his wing and taught me much about life." SB Nation’s Dan Rubenstein wrote, “I'm convinced nobody loved CFB more than Beano. Memory like a steel trap, he's always going to be college football's awesome grandfather.” SiriusXM’s Paul Finebaum: "One of Beano's best after Bowie Kuhn offered the freed Iranian hostages lifetime pass for baseball. 'Haven't they suffered enough?'"
