For more than 40 years, Rick Insell has been on a sideline, from grammar schools to high schools, and the past 12 years at Middle Tennessee State University.

Winning over a thousand games, ten state championships, and reaching nine NCAA tournaments.

Now, he's headed for the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame, one of six members of the class of 2017.

Insell will be inducted alongside women's stars like Sheryl Swoopes and Kara Wolters at the Hall of Fame in Knoxville June 9 and 10.

A high school coaching legend at Shelbyville, where he won 775 games and a record ten state titles, Insell's one of just five college coaches to win more than 25 games per season, guiding Middle Tennessee to 15 regular season or conference tournament championships.
