About this title


You’ll like all the stories about the great football coaches beginning first with the Academy’s founding in 1820 just under 200 years ago. After introducing West Point, the book takes us through a great ride from the beginning of American football to the beginning of the Army football program in 1890. From here, we look at each and every one of the thirty-seven great Army coaches through the great Red Blaik era in the mid-20th century to today with a revitalized Army Football Team under coach Jeff Monken. You will learn that like no other football team, the coaches of the USMA have created an environment where the US Army Cadets are trained to be fierce and passionate competitors. You can bet that fFrom the stadium to the classroom to the research lab, the US Army Black Knights are trained to always play to win. You will learn about first coach Dennis Michie’s first official football game in 1890 even before American football had been completely defined. Michie was not only the head coach of the first team in 1890, he was the team captain. Today the Stadium’s name is in his honor. From here, the book moves you one Army coach at time through the immortals—Charles Daly, Biff Jones, Ralph Sasse, and Earl “Red” Blaik. And then, on the way to today, we stop for other fine coaches such as Bob Sutton and Jim Young. Army has had many great seasons with great coaches tomentor a ton of great players. The history of Army coaches as told here is just fascinating as is the entire Army football program. This book captures the many great coaching seasons and the contributions of each of the 37 head coaches and some of the standout players they helped to create such as Army’s three Heisman winners, the immortal Felix “Doc” Blanchard, Pete Dawkins, and of course Glenn Davis. This book is for your reading pleasure but it also can be a great reference tool for when you want to see how well a job a particular coach did in any of the 127 years of the Army football program. If you are an Army Football fan. you will not want to put this book down.
