Wallace from The 1928 Scarlet Letter
|Head coaching record|
John H. Wallace was an American football coach. He served as the head football coach at Rutgers University from 1924 to 1926. In his first season, the team went 7–1–1 and Wallace was signed to a three-year contract. But over the next two years the team's fortunes sagged, and in February, 1927, the Rutgers University Athletic Board replaced Wallace. His overall record was 12–14–1 in three seasons. In March 1928, Wallace hired a former Bergen County prosecutor to pursue a legal claim that the university had violated the terms of the three-year contract.
