Tim Temerario was an assistant football coach in both the college and professional ranks from 1934 to 1965 and was director of player personnel and executive assistant to the general manager of the Washington Redskins from 1965 to 1978. After his retirement in 1978, he continued to reside in the Washington DC area. Tim was born in Lorain, Ohio, in 1906 and came to Beaver County in 1925. For two years he was varsity football center at New Brighton High School, graduating in 1927. He then played four years of football at Geneva College under coaches Bo McMillan and Howard Harpster. After seeing action at quarterback, end, guard, center, and linebacker, the versatile Temerario was named MVP on the undefeated 1931 Geneva team. He later served as line coach at Indiana University, Denison College, North Carolina State, and Penn State. In the pros, Tim was line coach for the Detroit Lions (1948-1950), Cleveland Browns (1950-1951), and an assistant coach for the Washington Redskins (1960-1965). Indiana was Big Ten champion in 1945 and the Browns were NFL champs in 1950 while Tim was on their staffs. He was a Navy lieutenant commander in World War II, serving as a beachmaster at Omaha Beach on D-Day in Normandy and also during the invasion of the Philippines.
