After serving in the Navy during World War II, and participating in the D-Day invasion, Agler returned to Otterbein in 1946 where he was a member of, arguably, the best team in school history. He was instrumental in Otterbein’s most memorable game, a 13-7 loss to the University of West Virginia with the Cardinals threatening to score as time expired. After graduating in 1948 he played

professionally for the Los Angeles Rams of the National Football League (NFL) and the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League (CFL). Returning to central Ohio in 1950 Agler was hired as head football coach at his alma mater, Dublin High School, where he won the Franklin County Championship. He moved to Johnstown High School in 1952 before returning to Otterbein the next year as an assistant to Harry Ewing. In 1955 Agler replaced Ewing as head coach serving two stints, from 1955 to 1965 and 1970 to 1974, compiling a total record of 74–63–5. He was also the head basketball coach at Otterbein from 1955 to 1958, tallying a mark of 13–39, and served as Athletic Director (1955-1975). Following his retirement, he was instrumental in the construction of the new Memorial Stadium.

Kenyon – Philip J. Morse (b: 1932, Troy, NY, BS-Wittenberg, 1956) Morse came to Kenyon in 1967 as football coach and athletic director from Xavier University where he was assistant football coach. In 1972 he led the Lords to their second undefeated season in school history (7-0-1). He left Kenyon in 1977 with a record of 47-48-2. From 1981-1983 Morse was football coach and athletic director at Heidelberg (9-18) and baseball coach (82-84).
