Six of Michigan's National Titles were garnered by the Wolverines first coaching superstar, Fielding H. Yost.
Yost directed his point-a-minute teams to 4 consecutive National titles from 1901-04 while going 41-0-1. Yost also led Michigan to National Titles in 1918 and 1923. It was Yost who was instrumental in the creation of Michigan Stadium, and who designed it to permit its expansion to expand to a capacity of over 150,000. Yost's legacy also lives on with Yost Ice Arena, where Michigan's men's ice hockey team plays their home games. Michigan has won 5 more National Titles since Yost permanently retired in 1926. Michigan's famous football coaches include: Fielding Yost, who came to Michigan from Stanford University in 1901 (see above).

The name of the new coach, reared in the farmlands and oil fields of West Virginia, was Fielding H. Yost. Fielding Yost guided Michigan to its first Rose Bowl and in 25 seasons won 165 games.He dominated archrival Chicago.He developed into an American coaching legend.Yost started a legacy that ran from himself through Harry Kipke, Fritz Crisler, Bennie Oosterbaan, Bump Elliott, Bo Schembechler, Gary Moeller and Lloyd Carr. And the coaching edict put out by Yost in old Ann Arbor town back in 1901 is identical.Yost was a dictator, a demagogue, a man with a huge ego, a coach who did not tolerate any nonsense, according to the historical archives. Yost arrived in Ann Arbor as, likely, college football's first carpetbagger coach.He jumped from more college coaching jobs than Nick Saban.Yost had already been coach at Ohio Wesleyan, Nebraska, Kansas and Stanford.Yost became coach at Michigan after he got the boot by Stanford.Yost was very much a self-promoter.Charles Baird hired Yost at Michigan sight unseen, by reputation.Yost cut the newspaper articles himself and sent them off, first to Illinois.And Yost was not a Michigan Man until the train pulled into the Ann Arbor depot, and he dragged his luggage up the hill.Yost, when he became coach at Michigan, could not put the forward pass into his offensive system.The pass was illegal.Touchdowns were worth five points.So were field goals.But Yost's highly geared offense produced what were called "Point-A-Minute" teams.

Yost | May 12, 2001 - Wolverinefans.com Feature of the Week: Fielding YostBeginning with his inaugural club of 1901, Yost led the Michigan football program on an unprecedented victory run over a five year period.Known as the "Point-a-Minute" teams, those Yost led squads played 56 consecutive games without a loss fro1901-1905, which remains the longest winning streaks in school history In those five season the Wolverines outscored their opponents 2,821 to 42 an average Michigan victory of 50-1.In his first season, 1901, Yost led the Wolverines to a perfect 10-0 record, a Big Ten Championship, a 49-0 victory over Stanford in the First Rose Bowl game and the school's firt national championship.The Wolverines went on to win the national title again in 1902, 1903, and 1904.Under Yost, the maize and blue won ten Big Ten championships and 20 of his players earned All-American recognition.Along with his accomplishments as the head football coach, Yost served as Michigan's Director of Athletics from 1921-41.For his leadership of the athletic department, Yost is viewed by many as the consummate pioneer and visionary of the field.As athletic director, Yost continued Michigan's tradition of accepting only the highest personal, academic, and athletic standards, while spreading that ideal to the facilities which support Michigan's athletic pursuits.Yost conceived and engineered today's modem athletic campus in Ann Arbor.Among the projects constructed under Yost's direction were Michigan Stadium, the university's 18-hole golf course, the nation's first Intramural Sports Building and the nation's first multi-purpose field house-now known as Yost Ice Arena.Yost received a law degree from the University of West Virginia, yet also attended school at Ohio Northern University and Lafayette.He began his coaching career at Ohio Wesleyan University and led them to the school's only victory over Ohio State.After leaving Ohio Wesleyan, Yost held brief coaching stints at the University of Kansas and the University of Nebraska.In 1900, he continued his move to the west coast and took the over as the head coach at Stanford University, where he remained for a year before Stanford enacted a rule allowing only graduates to coach its football teams.Arguably no one has left a larger mark on University of Michigan Athletics than Fielding Yost.Long time football coach (165-29-10) and athletic director his career was marked with great achievements both on and off the field.From 1901-05 Yost's football teams were undefeated in 56 straight games.During those five seasons Michigan outscored its opponents 2,821 to 42 leading these teams to be referred to as "Point-a-minute" squads.Yost won Michigan's first football National Championship and as athletic director oversaw the construction of Michigan Stadium, the University golf course, the nation's first intramural building, and the field house which now bears his name (Yost Arena).Detroit News article on Fielding H. Yost from October 20, 1996Michigan Daily article on Fielding H. Yost from March 26, 1999Detroit Free Press article on Fielding H. Yost from October 21, 1999Report submitted by Fielding Yost to Athletics Director on May 31, 1924Yost asked to be buried at the highest point in Ann Arbor, and his grave lies in Forest Hill Cemetery next to campus.On his tombstone there is a quote from Yost, who was born in West Virginia but was never happier than when he was in Ann Arbor: I WISH TO REST WHERE THE SPIRIT OF MICHIGAN IS WARMEST.
