Football Coach Tenyer is a champion for Organ Donation

MOREHEAD STATE UNIVERSITY | Mark Maloney


When he's not tied up with duties as the Morehead State head football coach, Rob Tenyer does his best to promote a cause close to his heart.

Organ donation.

This fall, for the fourth season in a row, MSU will have a game-day event to promote that effort and Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates. KODA, as it is known, was formed in 1987 and is dedicated to saving lives through organ and tissue donation and transplantation. In addition to Kentucky, KODA serves parts of Indiana and West Virginia.

The date for this year's MSU game-day event has not yet been set.

Tenyer's direct connection to organ donation is his father, Joe, who received a kidney transplant in 2014.

Soon after that, the coach received a call from a young lady that worked with his wife, Jane.
The call came from Morgan McCallvin, who is a two-time pancreas transplant recipient and a KODA ambassador.

When she encouraged Tenyer to become involved in promoting organ donation, he was quick to agree.

One highlight of his activity is the Eagles' annual game-day promotion. Organ recipients and donor families are invited to attend and, along with Joe Tenyer, serve as game-day captains. Continue reading
