He also talked about growing up in Waco, Texas; his career as a heavily recruited quarterback at A.J. Moore High School; and his football coaching career in Texas during the 1970s and 1980s. In discussing his time at the University of Wisconsin, Ritcherson recounted his conflicts with head football coach John Coatta, and he discussed the racial turmoil that beset the football program in the late 1960s.en
