John Carroll University honors Tony DeCarlo during Homecoming Weekend 2012. As a successful coach, mentor, and leader, Tony developed a strong JCU athletics program, beginning in 1964. He served as the school’s athletic director from 1986 until his retirement on February 1, 2003, when he became the University’s Director of Athletic Giving. The DeCarlo Varsity Center is named in his honor.
The Plain Dealer’s Terry Pluto prepared a special feature on Tony.
