Wasil Returns To Coach Quarterbacks, Receivers

Steve Wasil, '06, who quarterbacked Albion College to the 2005 Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association championship as the league's Offensive Most Valuable Player and played professionally in the Arena Football League, will return to the Britons this fall as the assistant coach in charge of quarterbacks and receivers.

"I am proud to welcome another former Briton to the coaching staff, especially one as talented at Steve," Albion Head Coach Craig Rundle, '74, said. "I believe Steve has the credentials to gain the attention and respect of our group of quarterbacks and receivers. We look forward to having Steve's experience on the coaching staff."

Wasil, who prepped at Detroit Catholic Central and was inducted into the Catholic League's Hall of Fame in 2006, still holds the Albion records for passing yards in a career (6,018) and season (3,313 in 2005). He also holds the school standard with 62 career touchdown passes, including 33 during the 2005 campaign.

Wasil was a two-time all-MIAA performer as a Briton, achieving second team status in 2004 and rising to first team in '05.

A starter in 14 games for the AFL's Tampa Bay Storm in 2012, Wasil rushed for 19 touchdowns to rank second in the league. He finished the 2012 season completing 60 percent of his passes for 3,664 yards and 71 touchdowns.

Wasil joined Tampa Bay for the 2011 season and he started the final five games.
