Head Coach – Bill Feraco

East Lansing High School

Feraco, Bill


Bill Feraco graduated from Greensburg (PA) Central Catholic High School in 1965.  He then attended Michigan State University on an athletic/football scholarship, and was a member of and played on the national championship teams of 1965 and 1966.  He received both his BA in Communication Arts in 1969 and his MA in English Education in 1988 from MSU.

Bill has coached football for 36 years; among his coaching stops have been Hempfield Area (PA) High School, Albion College, Eaton Rapids High School, and currently, East Lansing High School.  Bill has been the head coach at East Lansing nine years compiling a record of 52-43.  His teams have made the state playoffs six years, winning three district titles, one regional title, and securing a semi-final berth in 2007.

“I have been extremely fortunate to have taught and coached with some very outstanding people, people who truely care and understand the real-life value that athletics play in a young person’s life.  To be selected by my colleagues to guide and represent the West staff is a profound honor.  Having worked with my son, Gianni, for the last three years and being able to share this experience with him makes this even more special.”

Bill and Suzan, his wife of 29 years,  have three children, Wilhemina, Gianni, and Joseph.
