Early coaching career

Kuharich began his coaching career as an assistant freshman coach at Notre Dame in 1938. In 1939, he coached at the Vincentian Institute in Albany. He then moved to the pro ranks as a player, playing guard for the Chicago Cardinals in 1940 and 1941. After serving in the Navy, he returned to the Cardinals in 1945, his last season as a player. In 1946, Kuharich served as line coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers, then in 1947 he moved on to the University of San Francisco as line coach and was promoted to head coach in 1948. His overall record was 26-14, including an undefeated 9-0 docket in 1951. Among his most prized pupils was Ollie Matson, who would become a Pro Football Hall of Fame running back with the Chicago Cardinals. When Kuharich felt the time was right, he moved up to the NFL himself, serving as head coach of the Chicago Cardinals in 1952, succeeding Curly Lambeau. In 1953, he served as a scout for several pro teams, then in 1954 became coach of the Washington Redskins, then owned by the controversial George Preston Marshall. Once again, Kuharich succeeded Lambeau. The team "boasted" of diminutive Eddie LeBaron, the smallest quarterback in the league, who had the daunting task of succeeding the legendary Sammy Baugh. A successful campaign in 1955 landed Kuharich "Coach of the Year" honors, then hardships sent Kuharich's 'Skins to a losing stretch. After five seasons in Washington, Kuharich resigned when Notre Dame beckoned.

Notre Dame

He took the head coaching position at the University of Notre Dame in 1959, realizing a longtime ambition to return to his alma mater, where he compiled a 17-23 record over four nonwinning seasons. Included was a school-record eight-game losing streak in 1960, a year in which the Irish would finish 2-8. It was one of the worst stretches in Notre Dame football history, and Kuharich remains to this day the only coach ever to have an overall losing record at Notre Dame. The consensus opinion was that Kuharich never made the adjustment from pro football to college football, attempting to use complicated pro coaching techniques with collegiate players. He often said, "You win some and you lose some," and seemed perfectly content finishing 5-5 every year. This did not sit well with the Irish faithful, who expected Notre Dame to beat everybody. The team played listlessly, showing no emotion. When the pressure of winning became too much to bear, Kuharich resigned in the spring of 1963 and assumed the post of supervisor of NFL officials. Because it was so late in the spring, Hugh Devore was named interim head coach while the search for a permanent replacement was being conducted. Little did Joe know at the time that the players he had recruited would come to within 93 seconds of an undefeated season and a national championship in 1964 under first-year coach Ara Parseghian.

Interestingly, Kuharich was involved in a game whose controversial ending resulted in a rule change still in effect today. In 1961, Notre Dame faced Syracuse in South Bend and trailed, 15-14 with three seconds left to play. A desperation 56-yard field goal attempt fell short as time ran out, and Syracuse appeared to have won the game. But the Orangemen were penalized 15 yards for roughing the placekick holder, and given a second chance with no time showing on the clock, Notre Dame kicker Joe Perkowski drilled a 41-yard field goal for a 17-15 Irish victory. Syracuse immediately cried foul, claiming that under the existing rules, the second kick should not have been allowed because time had expired. It was later determined that the officials had erred in allowing the extra play, but the Irish victory was permitted to stand. The current rule which states that a half cannot end on a defensive foul was implemented as a result of this game.


Philadelphia

Joe Kuharich returned to the NFL coaching ranks with the Philadelphia Eagles in 1964. The team had gone through an unsteady 1963, and was ready for massive changes. To this end, Eagles' owner Jerry Wolman made Kuharich head coach and general manager. The new "coach for life" would work with two players the Eagles acquired in a trade with Washington: quarterback Norm Snead and defensive back Jimmy Carr. Philadelphia also acquired Ollie Matson from the Detroit Lions. Despite the acquisitions, the Eagles continued to decline. For their fans, already burned by the Philadelphia Phillies blowing a certain World Series berth in 1964, the decade would not get any better.

Kuharich's only winning season with the Eagles came in 1966. That gave the team a date with the Baltimore Colts in the "Playoff Bowl," a postseason exhibition intended to draw fans and help coaches plan for the following season. It was for this Playoff Bowl of January 8, 1967 that Kuharich became the first coach to wear a wireless microphone for NFL Films. Portions of his wiring and the Playoff Bowl itself, were used at the end of NFL Films' 1967 special They Call It Pro Football. Later Kuharich agreed to have the Eagles' training camp screen an offbeat NFL Films presentation called The Football Follies. Philadelphia's mediocre team laughed uproariously at the sight of NFL players making mistakes.

The 1968 season would be Kuharich's last. Philadelphia fans' patience had run out as the Eagles seemingly did nothing right, even when it came to doing things wrong. Though the Eagles lost their first eleven games, they still were in a dogfight with the Buffalo Bills for the right to select first in 1969 Draft. All this turned Franklin Field into a bitter home turf. Fans bellowed "Joe Must Go" at each game. When a rumor emerged that someone threatened to shoot Kuharich, plainclothes security ringed the stadium to prevent sniper fire. It did not help that Kuharich could not get his message across to virtually anybody. He was noted for crossing up expressions, such as "bat on a hill," "fine kennel of fish," and "Now the shoe is on the other side of the table." People forgot that Kuharich devised the 4-3 defense[citation needed].

The nadir period of Eagles football began on Thanksgiving Day 1968, when Sam Baker kicked all the points in the Eagles' 12-0 shutout of the Detroit Lions. Fearing this would cost them a chance to draft O.J. Simpson No. 1 overall, vigilante civilians, calling themselves "The Committee to Rejuvenate the Philadelphia Eagles," took action. They urged season-ticket holders to boycott the remaining two home games as a protest to team misfortunes under Kuharich. As might have been expected, Philadelphia's worst fears came true that Sunday, December 8. The Eagles beat the equally woeful New Orleans Saints in Franklin Field; this win guaranteed the Buffalo Bills (whose bye week fell on the season's last Sunday) would get the top draft pick in 1969.

If the victory over the Saints was bad enough, what happened the next Sunday was even worse.
