BALTIMORE (AP) — Jim Margraff, the winningest football coach in Johns Hopkins University’s history, has died at 58.
Citing a release from the Baltimore university, news outlets report the former Hopkins quarterback who led his alma mater’s football program for 29 years died Wednesday at home.
Less than a month ago, Margraff guided the Blue Jays to the NCAA Division III semifinals for the first time. With Margraff at the helm, Johns Hopkins posted a 221-89-3 record, won a Centennial Conference-record 14 league championships and made the NCAA playoffs 10 times. With that record, Margraff is also the winningest coach in Maryland state history.
