Frank Rohter

Frank Rohter helped lay the foundation for the early success in athletics enjoyed by UCF, then known as FTU, all while serving as the chair of the physical education department. He was responsible for hiring some of UCF's most successful coaches during his tenure, including UCF Athletics Hall of Fame inductees Torchy Clark, Gerry Gergley, Dennis Kamrad and Jim Rudy.

What made his hiring of these successful coaches more amazing was the fact UCF had little funding and no facilities for athletics and each coach also had to accept a teaching position at the University in addition to their coaching duties.
