From 1918-1921 Anderson played football at Notre Dame under Knute Rockne, earning All-American honors at guard. While playing with the Chicago Bears from 1922-1926 he assisted Rockne at Notre Dame. From 1927-1928 he coached at the University of St. Louis. He returned to Notre Dame in 1930 as an assistant to Rockne and after Rockne's tragic death assumed the head coaching responsibilities until 1933. Anderson had a three-year record of 16-9-2. He moved next to North Carolina State where he coached until 1936. In 1937 he coached at Michigan and in 1938 at Cincinnati, he took over as head coach of the NFL Detroit Lions in 1939. His final coaching position was with the Chicago Bears, where he remained for eleven seasons. He retired from football in 1951 to devote full time to his job as an account executive for the Production Steel Co. based in Detroit.
