MSU Press announces a new book about Duffy Dougherty, Hall of Fame football coach who led the MSU Spartans to a winning record of 109 wins; 69 losses, and five ties during his tenure from 1954–1972. Author David Claerbaut writes about highlights of Duffy’s life in his new book Duffy Daugherty: A Man Ahead of His Time. In his career, Daugherty coached 33 first team All-Americans, but probably more rewarding to him was the fact he recruited 59 black players to play football at MSU during a time when they could not play for the powerhouse Southern teams like Alabama.
David Claerbaut is a championship coach, nationally known business consultant, and motivational speaker. He is a Master Methodologist at Grand Canyon University and previously was Chair of the Sociology/ Anthropology Department at North Park University in Chicago, where he also served as Athletic Director.
Duffy Daugherty: A Man Ahead of His Time is available as both paperback and eBook.
