Larry Kehres, the head coach...

...of Division III football champion Mt. Union, is stepping down after 39 years at the helm of the Purple Raiders. From

In 27 seasons, his teams won 23 Ohio Athletic Conference championships while posting 21 undefeated regular seasons and claiming 11 NCAA Division III national championships.

A 1971 Mount Union graduate, Kehres has a career coaching record of 332-24-3 (.929) which makes him one of the winningest coaches in the history of college football.

It also means that Kehres had fewer losses than seasons coached. Wow!

He will remain the director of athletics, while Vince Kehres has been named head football coach effective immediately.

The piece doesn't say whether or not the two are related. I'll just assume it's a wild coincidence that they're both named Kehres.

Finally, I've been told that since 1993, every Mt. Union senior class has won at least one national championship. Again, wow!
