Ike J. Armstrong (June 8, 1895 – September 4, 1983) was an American football player, coach of football, basketball, and track, and college athletics administrator. He served as the head football coach at the University of Utah from 1925 to 1949, compiling a record of 141–55–15. Under Armstrong, Utah won 13 conference championships, seven in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference and six in the Mountain States Conference. Armstrong's 25-year tenure is the longest of any Utah Utes football head coach and his 141 wins are the most in program history. Armstrong also coached Utah's basketball and track teams and served as the school's athletic director. He attended Drake University where he played college football as a fullback. From 1950 to 1963, he served the athletic director at the University of Minnesota. Armstrong was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as a coach in 1957. He died at the age of 88 of pneumonia at the Flagship Convalescent Home in Corona Del Mar, California on September 4, 1983.[1]
