He was the first head football coach at Texas Tech to win a bowl game during his first season—an accomplishment unmatched at Texas Tech until Tommy Tuberville's first season, in 2010-2011.[1]

In 1956, he became the first college coach to defeat the Texas Longhorns in a season-opener in Austin.[2] He amassed a 49-51-5 record.[3]

From 1951 to 1960, he also served as the athletic director at Texas Technological College, as Texas Tech University was then known.[2]

His son, DeWitt Jr., is a professional golfer who won twice on the PGA Tour.[4]
