Dye was honored in a ceremony at Jordan-Hare Stadium in November last fall prior to Auburn's victory over Alabama. He was also honored at a formal ceremony last December in New York City.
Auburn's home field at Jordan-Hare Stadium is now named Pat Dye Field.
Head football coach of the Tigers from 1981-1992, Dye returned Auburn to the national scene as a respected football power and in his role as athletic director put in the foundation for making Auburn successful on the national scene in a variety of sports.
Dye posted a record of 99-35-5 at Auburn. He is second in AU history in total victories behind the 176 won by another Hall of Fame coach, Ralph "Shug" Jordan, who led the Tigers from 1951-75.
Dye was head coach at East Carolina and then Wyoming for one season before coming to Auburn, where he also had a major impact as an athletic director who made major upgrades in programs and facilities. The former University of Georgia All-American defensive end led the Tigers to SEC Championships in 1983, 1987, 1988 and 1989.
