So much more than a winning record, Mike Berticelli established a high level of pride, commitment and integrity within the men's soccer program at Notre Dame. For countless student athletes "Coach B" was the one true and fixed landmark upon which they always could rely. Similar to a large rock, firm and solid, durable and steady, Mike Berticelli was a man who did not necessarily point the way, but rather served as a point of reference for all who knew him.
