Sig Makofski, the legendary Mont Pleasant basketball coach who was known for his ‘Wonder Teams,” turned down the Syracuse head coaching job in 1950, when the Orangemen would not meet his demand for $10,000 a year for five years. Makofski resumed his duties as the Red Raider head coach the 1950-1951 season. Makofski was the Mont Pleasant head coach from 1926-1951, and his overall record was an eye-popping 354-24. He had six undefeated teams and winning streaks of 46, 42, 39, and 36 games. Makofski also coached three undefeated football teams.
