Coaching career[edit]

Coach Woodard was head football, basketball and track coach and athletic director at McPherson College in McPherson, Kansas from 1950 to 1952. His football coaching record at McPherson was 18 wins, 7 losses and 1 tie. As of the conclusion of the 2010 season, this ranks him #5 at McPherson in total wins and #2 at the school in winning percentage (.712).[1]

Woodard left McPherson to become the head football coach at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. He resigned as SMU coach after two consecutive losing seasons in 1956.

Soon later he signed a three-year contract to coach the University of Wichita (now Wichita State University) in his hometown of Wichita, Kansas and he held that position for three seasons, from 1957 until 1959. His overall coaching record at Wichita was 10 wins, 18 losses, and 2 ties. This ranks him 17th at Wichita State in terms of total wins and 23rd at Wichita State in terms of winning percentage.[2] After three seasons with a combined 10–18–2 record, his contract was not renewed.
