Press Maravich's first head coaching job at the college level was West Virginia Wesleyan College, 1949-1950. From there he went to his alma mater Davis & Elkins 1950-1951., as head coach. He had previously served as an assistant under Red Brown 1947-1949.


Maravich was the head coach at Clemson University from 1957 - 1962. He then went to North Carolina State University to be an assistant coach under Everett Case. Maravich took over the head coaching duties when health problems, namely cancer, forced Case to retire early in the 1964 - 1965 season. Maravich led the Pack to the Atlantic Coast Conference Title that season. Maravich left for Louisiana State University in April of 1966 where he coached his son, Pete Maravich. Upon offering the LSU scholarship to "Pistol," "Press" told his boy that "If you don't sign this ... don't ever come into my house again." In spite of coaching his prolific son for half of his coaching career at LSU, Maravich had an overall losing record at the school. Maravich was replaced at LSU by Dale Brown in 1972.
