Forrest "Frosty" Westering (December 5, 1927 – April 12, 2013) was an American football coach.[1] He served as the head coach at Parsons College (1962–1963), Albert Lea (1966–1971), and Pacific Lutheran University (1972–2003). His career mark of 305–96–7 is a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) record for most coaching wins, and he ranks ninth in wins among all college football coaches.

Under Westering, Pacific Lutheran won four national titles (three NAIA titles and one NCAA Division III title).

After Westering retired, his son Scott took over as head coach of the Pacific Lutheran football team. He still coaches football at Pacific Lutheran today.

Westering served in the US Marine Corps immediately following World War II. Well known for his motivational speaking and his efforts to spread his positive outlook on life, Westering has written a popular book, Make the Big Time Where You Are. He was buried at Tahoma National Cemetery in Kent, Washington.
