His first job at Idaho in 1957 was that of Director of Intramurals, and that served as a stepping stone to serving as an assistant football coach for the next nine years. He was named the head football coach in 1966. He stepped down in 1974 to enter private business. That's when he became involved in the Vandal Boosters and in 1982 he was back as UI's assistant athletic director.
