Olympic Athlete, College Basketball and Track Coach. He was the head basketball coach at the University of Washington from 1921 to 1948, and the head track coach of the Huskies from 1919 to 1955. As coach of the Husky basketball program, he compiled a record of 488 wins against 195 losses. He led the Huskies to three conference championships in track and field, three conference titles in basketball and ten Northern Division basketball titles. He is regarded by many as the greatest coach in the school's history, and he remains the winningest coach in the history of the Washington athletic program. Prior to arriving in Seattle, he attended the University of Idaho where he was a star track athlete, and also coached the men's basketball and track teams. He was a member of the 1912 U.S. Olympic team, competing in Stockholm, Sweden, where he won qualifying heats in both the 400 and 800 meter distance events. In 1948 the basketball sports complex located on the campus of the University of Washington was renamed and dedicated in his honor, and in 1979 he was inducted into the Husky Hall of Fame.
