Larry Kehres led the Division-III powerhouse program of Mount Union over the last 27 years and compiled some ridiculous numbers during his tenure.

From 1986-2012, the Purple Raiders went 332-24-3 (.924), won 11 national championships and had two different winning streaks of 54 and 55.

Kehres averaged less than one loss per season throughout his career, and of the few he had, five came on the biggest stage—21 percent of Mount Union’s losses were in the national championship.

Not only did his players expect to win title every year, but many went through the program with thoughts of playing and coaching at the next level—and plenty have succeeded.

Kehres’ legacy may come to an end, but the family name will continue. His son Vince, the current defensive coordinator, will take over head coach responsibilities. Kehres will retain his position as athletic director.

Can Mount Union continue its dominance over the next few decades?
