Clemson: Where the Tigers Play, covers the major events that have occurred in over a century of athletic competition. From Frank Howard’s homespun humor to the National Championships Clemson has won in various sports, this book gives the many details of the Tigers at play.
January 11, 1940 Frank Howard is named head football coach.
“Howard retired from coaching December 10, 1969, after 39 years on the Clemson coaching staff, 30 of which were as head coach. He was also athletic director during this time and he kept this position until February 4, 1971, when he was named assistant to the vice president of student affairs at the university. He held that post until the mandatory retirement age of 65 rolled around in 1974.
“Shortly after his retirement the Clemson Board of Trustees named the playing surface of Memorial Stadium (“Death Valley”) “Frank Howard Field” in honor of his long service to the university. It was only the third time that a building or installation had been named by the trustees for a living person.” (pgs. 237-238)
