SAmos Alonzo Stagg (1862-1965)played and coached football for 71 years. He was 98 years old when he retired from coaching. He played at Yale and made the original All-America football team in 1889. Stagg became the Coach of the University of Chicago "Maroons" in 1892, and, as was allowable then, he also played on the team. He coached Chicago to six Big-Ten Championships in the Western Conference (1899, 1905, 1907, 1908, 1913, and 1924) and a tie in 1922; teams went undefeated for two of those seasons (1905, 1913).
