The news of the death of Coach Richey was difficult on many levels for his family and friends, especially his students and the athletes who cared deeply for him.
The harsh headline of "Coach Richey dead at 51" was a sensationalist headline and not at all appropriate for someone who was beloved like Reilly. The article and photo honored him, and hopefully his family can look beyond those headlines and appreciate the tribute of the article.
