Swimming: Ertl steps down after 30 years as swim coach
Rosemount athletic director Mike Manning doesn't need to go very far to understand how much swimming coach Jim Ertl has meant to the Irish swimming programs.
Manning has had three of his own sons pass through Ertl's programs.
"I've had three boys swim for him and I know he is a big person in my three sons' lives," Manning said. "They're really fond of coach Ertl."
