Without looking I think Mach was at cc in 75 or 76. ... So a paltry 36 ish years compared to ur boy. Lol.
Al was at shrine for like a decade pre- rice though iirc. Greatest coach in carholic league history - will never be close.
Think my guy tommy is like 75 wins behind him ( but a better winning % ;)
Will be different without the pumpkin heads being coached by that dude. Respect.

Fracassa was at Shrine for 8 years & coached 4 guys who got to the NFL in that stint. I'm not sure why exactly he left, Rice was only 3 years old when he made the switch.
I don't know about 'easily the best' but he is one for the ages. People like Mach and Herrington are up there, and who knows Munger could end up on that list as well.
Francessa is an establishment, Michigan football changes with his retirement. Hopefully he has a long and happy retirement, whatever he does he will always have people around whose life he changed and made better.
Can never under estimate the power of game planning and firing/hiring your son on a daily basis
Great way to close out with back-to-back state titles. Glad he coached long enough for the Mean Green Machine even the record.
Yup. For those that didn't know he played QB at MSU in the 1950s. I don't think he ever started or anything like that, but certainly can add him to the list of great Spartans who went on to do great thing!
And it looks like he is retiring after next season.
Al Fracassa will return for a 45th and final season as head football coach at Birmingham Brother Rice in 2013. Fracassa, 80, made the announcement at the team's banquet on Sunday.
