70 Years Later: A National Title in 1946

Judging the Greatness of the Past

McKeever originally attended Notre Dame from 1930-1931 and transferred to Texas Tech, where he played football from 1932-1934. He became the backfield coach at Texas Tech in 1935 and remained through 1938, coaching teams that played in bowl games four straight years. He joined Frank Leahy's staff at Boston College from 1939-1940. When Leahy came to Notre Dame so did McKeever, despite being asked to become head coach at Boston College. He coached under Leahy through the 1943 season and took over the head coaching responsibilities in '44 when Leahy went into the Navy. He moved on to Cornell as head coach from 1945-1946. In 1947 he became head coach at the University of San Francisco. He went to the All-American Conference to coach the Chicago Rockets in 1948, then joined the LSU staff the following season. He became general manager of the Boston Patriots in 1960.
