Former Oregon Tech Athletic Director Howard Morris (Oregon Tech)

The Klamath Falls community mourns the loss of a beloved Oregon Tech coach.

Howard Morris was an athletic director for more than 30 years and is remembered for coaching wrestling, baseball, and football.

Friends say they'll miss Morris' personality and integrity.

"He would go to war for you and he was a great athlete himself. Just a very good coach in a lot of different areas. And he was such a solid person," said Danny Miles, Friend of Morris.

Morris hosted the first and only wrestling national championship at Oregon Tech and was inducted into the Intercollegiate Coaches Hall of Fame.

Morris was also a member of the Crater High School Hall of Fame.
