Example text

Becoming a Football Coach JW: Would you briefly trace your coaching experience after you graduated from the University of Oklahoma. DR: I bounced around quite a bit. I always thought that it would be great if I could get a good high-school coaching job. That’s what I thought I would be. And when I graduated from the University of Oklahoma—I graduated at midterm, after the 1949 season—I was contacted by El Reno High School. I went over and visited with them and did accept the coaching job. And that gave me a little bit of encouragement that maybe I could get a job at the college level.

JW: I remember that. DR: You know, it had the wire fence around it? And Mr. Bible was there to greet me, and he took me straight to the campus of the University of Texas. JW: This was in 1956? DR: 1956. Bible picked me up and took me immediately to the president’s office. Logan Wilson was president at that time. He explained to me that we had academic standards, and we were going to adhere to those standards. And we were going to adhere to the rules. That didn’t bother me. We had a quick interview.

I didn’t tolerate that. Encouraged and patted ’em on the back like you can’t believe for a solid, head-on, jaw-to-jaw lick. It’s a contact sport. But there’s a way to make contact, and there’s a way that’s totally unacceptable. The throwing of elbows and clipping—the things that cause injuries— I definitely was opposed to those things.
