Eddie Kimball and BYU

Edwin “Eddie” R. Kimball graduated from Brigham Young University in 1926 and would return to coach football beginning in 1936. He would become athletic director in 1937 and serve as both head basketball and football coach for several years. Kimball coached basketball from 1936 to 1941. In 1941 Kimball resigned as basketball coach to focus on his duties as head football coach and athletic director. As a basketball coach Kimball compiled a record of 56-48. Kimball served as football coach from 1936 to 1948. He compiled a football record of 34-32-8 before hanging up his coaching cleats to focus completely on his duties as athletic director in 1948. The following images of Kimball and his teams are part of our BYU History digital collections which can be searched here.
