After graduating from Notre Dame in 1934 and serving as an end and Irish co-captain as a senior, Devore stayed on as freshman coach under Elmer Layden. From 1935-1937 he served as end coach at Fordham under Jim Crowley. He became the head coach at Providence in 1938 and stayed until 1941. In 1942 he took over as assistant head coach at Holy Cross. He came back to Notre Dame in 1943 as Frank Leahy's end coach and left again in 1946, when Leahy returned from military service, to become head coach at St. Bonaventure until 1949. He moved on to become head coach at New York University until 1952, then became an assistant coach for the Green Bay Packers in 1953. He served as head coach for the University of Dayton from 1954-55. From 1956-1957 he was head coach for the Philadelphia Eagles. In 1958 he returned to Notre Dame as Terry Brennan's freshman coach and assistant athletic director and remained on the staff when Joe Kuharich took over the following year. As interim head coach at Notre Dame in 1945 and 1963, Devore had a record of 9-9-1, filling in for Leahy in '45 and filling the gap in '63 between the Kuharich and Ara Parseghian eras.
