Slip Madigan
Birth: Nov. 18, 1896
Death: Oct. 10, 1966

Football coach. A star lineman, Edward Patrick "Slip" Madigan played for Knute Rockne at Notre Dame, and took over coaching at St. Mary's College in Oakland, California in 1921. That same year after a 127-0 fight at the hands of California he recruited some 60 men and taught them Notre Dame plays and some tricks of his own, including the "forward fumble." By 1926 his team had defeated California, Army and the College of the Pacific. His team remained the best in the nation until he quit football in 1940.
