Margarita Given Job as Assistant Football Coach

Former Coach Returns For Spring Training


Bob Margarita, until recently head coach of football at Georgetown, has been appointed an assistant coach at Harvard by Director of Athletics William J. Bingham '16.

Margarita and Josh Williams, Crimson backfield coach, are expected to arrive today to join Lloyd Jordan in spring training duties. Williams has been ill at his home for some time, and early speculation had Margarita replacing him. But Williams will definitely resume his old post, while no specific assignment has yet been fixed for the new coach.

Margarita, a former strong defensive halfback at Medford High and Brown, was at Harvard last in the 1946 and 1947 seasons when he was backfield coach under Dick Harlow. Between his college playing days and coaching at Harvard he spent a year in the service and starred for two seasons with the Chicago Bears. After leaving Cambridge, Margarita became an assistant coach at Yale in 1948, then moved on to Georgetown where he was head coach until the Hoyas dropped football last month.
