Legendary NU High Coach Remembered


For 43 years-- John Aldrich Sr. served as a coach and a teacher at NU-High in Cedar Falls.

Former Northern Iowa head football coach Terry Allen called to say he loved John Aldrich--and that he was like a father to him. Aldrich died Monday night at the age of 85.

Today--the Aldrich children, John jr., Stephen, Debra and Leanne all gathered at the house in Cedar Falls where they all grew up.

John Aldrich senior was a hall-of-fame football coach---with a great football mind. He authored a book on the single wing offense that earned him recent mention in Sports Illustrated.

Aldrich senior's children remember a loving, caring father.
