Coach Richardson is a great guy. In addition to being an obviously successful coach with a great program, he was the head coach of the Wolverine Swim Camp, at least for the several summers my sons attended about 6-8 years ago. He was a wonderful man and really great with the kids.
I wish him all the best in his retirement.
