Obituary - Frederick (MD) Post (December 21, 1978)
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - John Mauer, a former basketball coach at Tennessee, Kentucky, Army, Florida and Miami of Ohio, died Wednesday at a Knoxville nursing home. He was 77.
Mauer was Tennessee's head basketball coach from 1938-47 and served as an assistant Vols football coach those years, as well as from 1960-63.
He compiled a 127-41 record in his eight years as Tennessee's basketball coach and won two Southeastern Conference championships.
At Kentucky, where he preceded the late Adolph Rupp in the late 1920s, he was credited with developing the bounce pass as a regular part of basketball offense.
In the early 1920s, as a player at the University of Illinois, he was one of the first college players to experiment with the one-hand shot.
He had lived in Knoxville since his retirement and at a nursing home since August 1977. He is survived by his wife Grace and two sons.
Services have been scheduled for Friday.
