Ole Miss coach accused of using ‘ringers’

In 1909, the Red and Blue had hired an ear, nose and throat physician to teach at the medical school on campus. He came to Oxford from Pennsylvania where he had taught and coached at Dickinson College and Widener University. Dr. Nathan P. Stauffer had been one of the first men in college football history to be paid to coach. He also brought along with him some players that had played for him in Pennsylvania. He was dismissed in 1912 for allegedly paying his players he brought with him. (November 11, 2011, Page 3B)
