He returned to Milligan College in 1951 as coach of the baseball, basketball and track teams, and as athletic director. He remained at Milligan for 50 years, until his retirement in 2001. During his tenure at Milligan he taught and coached basketball, baseball, track, cross-country, and tennis, also serving as athletic director and Head Resident in the dormitories. He was inducted into the NAIA hall of fame in 2007.

He was inducted into the NAIA Coaches Hall of Fame in 1987.
