Former NC boys coach dies

Don Graham, the winningest high school basketball coach in Pennsylvania history, died Saturday morning in Passavant Hospital. Graham was 83-years-old.

Graham coached the North Catholic boys team for 51 years, from 1948-1999 and compiled a coaching record of 801-436. Graham won three Pennsylvania Catholic championships before North Catholic joined the WPIAL. He won 10 section championships.

Trojans head coach Dave Long, who was Graham's assistant for 20 years, guided NC to the PIAA Class AA championship game this year.
