Jesse Hawley

Jesse Hawley  

Hawley was hired by the University of Iowa in 1910. They had not won the conference title in a decade. At the same time, they also hired Nelson A. Kellogg in 1910 to be Iowa's athletic director, so Hawley could focus solely on coaching the football team, instead of managing entire athletic department as was typically the case with that position.

The most notable game that season was a 5-0 loss to Missouri in 1910, where he decided not to bring Archie Alexander, Iowa's talented black tackle to the game.

Fearing troubles similar to what Frank Holbrook, Iowa's first black football player, encountered in a game against Missouri in 1896, Hawley agreed to leave Alexander behind. When the Iowa team arrived in Columbia, a mob of local townspeople met the team to ensure that Alexander was not with them. In view of the racial incidents as well as the unsportsmanlike treatment Hawkeye players received during the game, Hawley vowed that Iowa would never again play Missouri in football as long as he was the coach, and they didn't play again until the 2010 Insight Bowl.

After resigning from Iowa to focus on his banking job in Chicago (which he would leave for 3 months during the fall season), he later returned to coach at his alma mater, Dartmouth, and went 22 games without a loss from 1923 to 1926. He reached the pinnacle of success in 1925, when he led Dartmouth to an undefeated 8–0 season and national championship.

Born 3/25/1887 and died on 3/21/1946 at the age of 58.

This site is NOT an official website of the University of Iowa or NCAA. I created this to save time searching for past videos, and watch them in the correct sequence. Any help in finding missing videos would be greatly appreciated! I can process old VHS tapes and DVDs. Special thanks to, Wikipedia, The Daily Iowan, UI Digital Library, SportsLogos.Net and the University of Iowa Athletics Department for the historical game results! Contact us if you want a similar website for your favorite school. Site ads and links to buying game tickets contain affiliate links, which means if you purchase after clicking the link we may receive compensation, which helps cover hosting cost of the site, so thank you! We can also take donations if you want to support this work. Why not women's sports or wrestling? There just isn't enough videos online to post, so 99% of the games would have no videos available, although recent interest in Women's Basketball Final Four team and the new Women's Wrestling means we will start adding outcomes and players as time permits, so we will need some help. If you have videos that you'd like to share with us, I would love to include these videos. If you want me to credit photos or remove photos, please contact me. Developed by BPI. Template by w3.css
