Hall of Fame College Football Coach. His total of 305 career victories earned him tenth placing on the all-time overall collegiate football coaches list to date. He will be best remembered for his 32-season tenure (1972 to 2003) as head coach of the Pacific Lutheran University's Lutes. Following service with the United States Marine Corps during the closing months of World War II, he attended Northwestern University in Iowa and later Nebraska-Omaha with whom he played collegiate football. He initiated his lengthy coaching career at the high school level prior to serving as head coach at Parsons College in Iowa from 1962 to 1964. This was followed with a stint as head coach at Lea College in Minnesota and in 1972 he succeeded longtime PLU coach Roy E. Carlson. During the course of his career at PLU, his teams won four national championships, and twelve conference titles. Individually, Westering earned National Coach of the Year honors three-times. His teams yielded 26 1st Team All-American. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2005. He died from congestive heart failure. (bio by: C.S.)
