Ross Elder

Elder served as an assistant coach at UT Martin from 1959-73 under Carroll, tutoring the defensive line. A Knoxville, Tenn. native, Elder helped guide UT Martin to a pair of conference championships (1960, 1967) and the 1967 Atlantic Coast College Division national championship after a victory in the Tangerine Bowl. He presided over several All-Americans who were known as the “Wild Bunch” for their hard-hitting reputation. An all-conference player at the University of Wyoming, he passed away on Oct. 9, 1986.
