A member of the Western New England College coaching staff and faculty for 31 years, Bill Downes coached baseball, basketball, golf and soccer. He amassed 100 victories as a basketball coach and 190 as men's soccer coach, but he may best be remembered for his love for the sport of golf. Bill resurrected the varsity program at WNEC in the 1980s and quickly built them into one of the strongest Division III programs in New England.
