Dick Harp, an assistant coach under famed University of Kansas head coach Forrest “Phog” Allen, committed his life to Christ only after he spoke on Allen’s behalf at a city-wide FCA rally in Nashville, Tennesse. The former KU basketball standout, who helped guide the Jayhawks to the 1940 NCAA Championship game, replaced Allen as head coach at Kansas in 1956, recording 121 wins in nine seasons. Harp left coaching after the 1963-64 season, choosing to strengthen his already-deep FCA involvement by becoming the FCA Managing Director under Executive Director James Jeffrey. Harp returned to coaching from 1986-89, after 13 years in his role at FCA, serving as an assistant at the University of North Carolina for Dean Smith, whom he coached at Kansas as an assistant under Allen.
