DeOrmond “Tuss” McLaughry has been associated with football as a player, coach, and administrator since 1907, when he played his first high school game at Sharon, PA. After playing his college ball at Michigan State and Westminster, McLaughry began his coaching career at the latter school in 1915. He coached four years at Amherst (1922-25), with his last team the highest scoring eleven in the history of the Little Three. Coming to Brown in 1926, McLaughry’s first team was the Iron Men, the only undefeated football team in the school’s history. His teams in 1928 and 1932 each lost only one game. McLaughry’s Brown record was 76-58-1 between 1926 and 1940, when he left to go to Dartmouth. McLaughry coached the East squads in the annual Shrine game four times. In 1940, his College All-Stars defeated the New York Giants. For many years McLaughry served the American Football Coaches’ Association as Secretary-Treasurer. He is in the National Hall of Fame.
