MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) -Ted Kjolhede, the winningest coach in Central Michigan history, has died. He was 84.
The school said Kjolhede died Sunday at his Mount Pleasant home. A cause of death was not released.
Kjolhede won 216 games in 15 seasons with the Chippewas starting in 1956. He moved to the athletic director's job in 1972 and served until retiring in 1984.
He was instrumental in the Chippewas' rise from Division II to Division I and its admission into the Mid-American Conference.
Kjolhede earned letters in football, basketball and tennis at Central Michigan, graduating in 1948.
