TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Frosty Westering, who retired from coaching with 305 career victories and led Pacific Lutheran to four national championships, has died at 85.
Westering died on Friday, according to the school. He was in failing health in recent years and spent his final two months in hospice care.
In 32 seasons at the NAIA and NCAA Division III school, Westering won four titles and finished as a national runner-up four other times. He won more than 78 percent of his games at PLU, going 261-70-5 at the private school. Before coming to PLU, Westering coached at Parsons College in Iowa and Lea College in Minnesota.
Westering retired in 2003 and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2005 and is among a select few coaches to have reached the 300-win plateau.
