At Penn, turned the Quakers into an Ivy League powerhouse, compiling a record of 28-9-2 his last four years.

Started his college coaching career as an assistant at Dartmouth, from 1971-78, a period in which Dartmouth became the first Ivy League team to win four consecutive championships until his own Penn teams duplicated that feat.
