COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. (CBS) – One of the most successful college wrestling coaches in the country is nearing a milestone.  Longtime Ursinus head man Bill Racich is four wins shy of 450 for his collegiate coaching career.

He came to Ursinus in 1980 but says the Coach Racich of today is different from the Coach Racich who came on the scene as Ronald Reagan was ascending to president of the United States.

“As any young coach, most of the young coaches, myself included, were pretty much out of our minds — twenty-four-seven, 300 miles per hour,” he recalls.

“I’ve learned that the devil is in the details,” he told KYW Newsradio this morning.  “To take a step back every now and then, keep things in balance, and just work individually with every student athlete on my team to make them better.”

It's not the greatest photo of Cass I've ever seen, but every women at Boathouse Sports and there's a lot of them have seen Cass from the back side. Turns out, as I heard directly from Olympic Rower and Boathouse founder John Strotbeck, Philly Whitemarsh started it all for their jacket line. Pretty cool eh? I know a lot of you still own and wear that jacket all the time. Visit Boathouse Sports to see all their new cool gear.
