Yost was a lawyer, author, and businessman in addition to being a well known football coach. After four single-season stints at Ohio Wesleyan, Nebraska, Kansas, and Stanford, Yost served as the head football coach for the Michigan Wolverines football team from 1901 through 1923, and again in 1925 and 1926. After retiring from coaching, Yost remained at Michigan as the school s athletic director, a position he held until 1942.
