After graduation, he would accept a position has head football coach for the Holy Cross Tigers in New Orleans, and then in 1938 would be hired as both head basketball coach and football backfield coach for Ole Miss. During World War II, he served in a temporary capacity as the assistant football coach for the Naval pre-flight school on the University of Georgia campus. Following the war, he had short stints as a backfield coach for Iowa and the AAFC's Buffalo Bills.
