Evans received his education at the now defunct Des Moines University in Iowa, which was later acquired by the University of Sioux Falls; this should not be confused with the present Des Moines University.
He served as the head football coach at Northern Illinois University from 1929 to 1954, compiling a record of 131–70–20. Evans was also the head basketball coach at Northern Illinois from 1929 to 1940 and head baseball coach at the school (1930–1934, 1937–1944, 1946–1947). His 131 wins are the most in the Northern Illinois Huskies football program's history.
