Bill Hargiss at Marion High School, 1909
Marion, KS

     They didn't hire coaches in those days. They hired a teacher and told him he was a coach, too.  Hargiss' first job was coaching and teaching two classes at the Marion High School.
       At Marion, Hargiss coached all sports including the girls' basketball team and also taught history and math. His teams—"composed of good, big farmer boys" — came through with great winning streaks that first year.
     Bill's year at Marion brought acquaintance with several high school gridsters whose names were at one time familiar around Topeka. Among his players were Laird Dean, Randolph Carpenter and Leland and Jack Thompson.  E. W. Hoch, who later became governor, was chairman of the school board.

Hiring Notice from August 12, 1909
