Officials said they thought it was Baugh's great love of football, not any financial gain, (hat brought about his decision to take the job. Succeeds Evans He succeeds Murray Evans, who resigned Sunday under what he termed pressure from the athletic committee. Baugh then said he wouldn't take the head coach job but would continue to "help out" as an associate. Baugh made Southwest Conference football history at Texas Christian as a standout passer and joining the Redskins in 1937. Fabulous Record He began a skein of records and accomplishments that still are talked about whenever football fans gather. In 1947. after a decade in the rough pro game, Baugh enjoyed his finest hour. He set league records for throwing the moat parses (354), making the most yards passing (2,988 yards), and for completing the most passes (210).
