From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Patrick H. Coady (July 11, 1867 in Pana, Illinois – June 18, 1943 in Los Angeles, California) was an American football player and a starting quarterback for the University of Notre Dame.

Unable to sustain the momentum built up by the team's two first-ever victories in 1888-89, the Notre Dame football program took a two-year hiatus from 1890-91. Pat Coady, the younger brother of Irish quarterback alums Tom and Ed Coady, was instrumental in reviving the program in 1892, recruiting a completely new squad of players, and becoming the de-facto team captain.

The new team played two games in the 1892 season, destroying South Bend High School 56-0, and then rallying from a 4-6 halftime deficit to tie Hillsdale College at 10-all.

Following graduation, Coady settled in Paris, Illinois where he married Helen Hennessy on September 2, 1902. They would later relocate to Los Angeles, California where Pat would open a law practice.
