King, who was Jewish, was born in Washington, D.C.[1][2]

Coaching career[edit]

At Wisconsin, King compiled a 66–11–1 (.853) record. The Badgers had four nine-win seasons during his tenure. King's 1896 and 1897 teams won the first two football championships of the Big Ten Conference, then known as the Western Conference. King's 1901 Wisconsin team went 9–0, outscored its opponents 317–5, and tied with Michigan for another conference title.

In 1903, King guided the Georgetown Hoyas to a 7–3 record.
