|Head coaching record|
Binford was the 17th head football coach at the Municipal University of Wichita—now known as Wichita State University, serving for two seasons, from 1944 to 1945, and compiling a record of 11–6–1. Binford "re-started" the program after a one-year hiatus (1943) when the school did not field a team.
Binford was more successful as Wichita's fourteenth head basketball coach. He assumed the head coaching job for the 1942–43 season, then restarted the program after it was suspended for the 1943–44 season during World War II. He coached the Shockers' basketball team for a total of five seasons, building a record of 60–50.
