Six Assistant Football Coaches Work Together in Teau

i Effort

Michigan had just smashed
Ohio State, 10-0, and its jubilant
head coach Bump Elliott praised
his assistant coaches for their fine
wI work all season.
A Big Ten championship is not
won by the work of one man.-It is
a combined effort of players and
a coaching staff which must
scout opposing teams and guide
the team against the adversaries'
K&specialized patterns of action.
<a 'h a;k< One of the guiding spirits of
the Wolverines is Tony Mason,
offensive line coach.
Mason came to Michigan last
spring after being one of Ohio's
} foremost high school football
coaches during the past decade.
At Niles McKinley High School,
Mason coached his teams to a
47-game winning streak over a
six-year period. He coached sev-
eral of the players appearing in
this year's Michigan-Ohio State
title clash.

Bf b Defensive Leaders

Hollway, who is in his tenth
season of coaching at Michigan,,
u i played on the Wolverines' 1948
ORose Bowl championship squad.
He was end on the 194' team thatt
featured Bump Elliott and Illinit

as an All-American and Cecchini
as an All-Big Ten linebacker.
Lineman Arnie Simkus was picked
by the Cleveland Browns on the
sixth round of the National Foot-
ball League draft.
Sophomore Coach
Dufek is in his second season as
defensive backfield coach and is
remembered by West Coast fans
for his two touchdowns in the
1951 Rose Bowl. The two smash-
ing drives paced Michigan to a
14-7 victory over California.
The former Wolverine star does
much of Michigan's scouting, and
this season had the task of find-
ing replacements for injured backs
John Rowser and Jack Clancy.
The two started in the defensive
secondary with Dick Rindfuss in
1963. Dufek found his starters in.
sophomores Rick Volk and Sygar.
Volk has since been named to the
Chicago Daily News All-Midwest
team. The defensive backfield has
contained such star passers as
Iowa's Gary Snook and North-
western's Tom Myers.
Heads East
Jocko Nelson came to Ann Ar-
bor from the University of Colo-
rado in 1959. He became the Wol-
verine end coach the same year*
that Elliott became head mentor.
Nelson, who shares much of the
scouting work with Dufek, was an I
assistant coach at Colorado for
two years. Before that time, Nel-
son coached at Utah State and in
Minnesota prep ball. The Wolver-
ine coach has had a surplus of
ends this year with John Hender-
son, Bill Laskey, Jim Conley, and
Craig Kirby all having seen ex-
tensive action last season.
The coach that did not have an
overabundance of experienced
personnel is Hank Fonde who
guides the offensive backs. Fonde
did have Bob Timberlake and Mel
Anthony back from last season.
The key to his success has been
in the sophomore crop. From the!
neighboring state of Ohio came
Jim Detwiler anc Carl Ward to
complete a backfield that has
terrorized the Big Ten.
Home Grown
Fonde earned football letters at
Michigan in 1945-46-47. He shared
the right halfback spot with El-
liott his last two years here and
returned as an assistant coach in
1959, the year Elliott became head
coach. Previous to his coaching at
Michigan, Fonde guided Ann Ar-
bot's University and Public High
School teams. In ten years at Ann
Arbor High, Fonde's teams won
nine league titles and had four
perfect seasons.
The man that has the task of
orientating freshman athletes in
Michigan's style of play is former
Wolverine halfback and wrestler,
Dennis Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald b e ca m e freshman
coach last fall when Dufek moved
up to his varsity position. The
freshman mentor was a halfback
in 1959-60 and also captured two
Big Ten wrestling titles
