Hall of Fame College Football Coach. For fourteen years (1969 to 1983), he served as head coach of the Wittenberg College Tigers and guided his teams to two National NCAA Division III Championship Titles (1973 and 1975). He graduated from Duquesne High School (Pennsylvania) and played collegiate football (quarterback position) at Denison University, before launching his lengthy coaching career, initially as an assistant under Hall of Fame coach Bill Edwards at Wittenberg in 1955. In 1969, he succeeded Edwards as head coach and during his tenure compiled a 129 win 23 loss 3 tie record, while receiving AFCA-Kodak Coach of the Year honors twice (1973 and 1975). In addition, he was on the board of trustees for the American Football Coaches Association 1973, the NCAA Rules Committee in 1974 and was president of the Coaches association from 1983 to 1984. At the time of his retirement, Maurer held the third highest winning percentage among all coaches in any division. After concluding his coaching career, he served as Wittenberg's athletics director and was professor of health and physical education. He was inducted into Wittenberg's Athletic Hall of Fame in 1987 and was enshrined into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1991. (bio by: C.S.)
