Football coach to retire

Throughout the Pierce College campus, William Norton, who plans to retire after the spring semester, is best known as a football coach and a professor for the Health and Physical Education department.


Currently, Norton teaches body conditioning and weight training.


Brahmas linebacker Jerry Peralt, 19, has great respect for the retiring coach.


“He’s a good man,” Peralt said. “He teaches here and he doesn’t have to. I know he has a lot of experience. Unfortunately he couldn’t coach me . . . he stopped coaching about five to seven years ago.”


Another student, Jerell Brown, 18, has had Norton as a professor for physical education classes.


“He’s pretty cool,” Brown said. “I think he’s ready for [retirement], it’s time for him.”
