Jerry Carle is known to many simply as “Coach.” Carle led the Colorado College football team for 33 years, and when the school recently made the economic decision to shut down its football program, President Dick Celeste and Athletic Director Ken Ralph visited Carle to break the news personally. In this week’s “Citizen Report,” Carle talks about some of the lessons learned and characters met in the early days of his coaching career. (Colorado College is KRCC’s licensee.)
