SEC Coach of the Year (1935)
John Francis "Jack" Meagher (October 1, 1896 – November 1968) was an American football player and coach.
Meagher played football for Notre Dame University in 1915-16, rising to a second-team end under then-assistant coach, Knute Rockne. He served with the U.S. Marines in France during World War I and played in four games with the 1920 Chicago Tigers, the first year of the National Football League.
Meagher embarked on a career in coaching in 1921 at St. Edward's University, where he served as head football coach from 1921 to 1928, compiling a record of 24–21–4, and as head basketball coach from 1922 to 1924. From 1929 to 1933, he coached football at Rice University, where he compiled a 26–26 record. From 1934 to 1942, he coached at Auburn University, where he compiled a 48–37–10 record. Meagher also coached the Iowa Pre-Flight Seahawks football team in 1944 during World War II. In 1946, he coached the first six games of the season for the Miami Seahawks of the All-America Football Conference.
Meagher was inducted into the St. Edward's University Athletics Hall of Fame in 1989.
He is buried at Hollywood (Florida) Memorial Gardens East.
