Caterisano, a professor of health sciences and 40-year veteran with the university, served as head wrestling coach 1984-1991 and saw Marty Fajerman ’91 crowned Southern Conference Champion under his leadership. He also coached in Greenville County Schools, at Christ Church Episcopal School and at Spartanburg Methodist College.
