CLEVELAND — It's the end of an era for one of Cleveland's most well-known institutions. For 40 years, St. Ignatius coach Chuck Kyle has taken the Wildcats football team to 11 state titles, two national championships and countless other accolades.

Tomorrow -- Friday, Oct. 21 -- is the last regular season game of his career as coach Kyle retires from his legendary role.

And once again, 3News' Maureen Kyle -- his daughter -- will be sitting in the stands, cheering him on. Thursday morning on GO!, she shared a special look back on what he taught his children as a father as they were along for the entire ride.
