After graduation from Gustavus in 1955, they moved to Baudette, Minnesota, where he taught general science and biology and coached football, basketball, and track for one school year. In 1956, they moved to Cannon Falls where he taught primarily physical education and health at Cannon Falls High School, and started a lengthy career coaching a variety of sports. He was head coach of the football team for 19 years, he was the first head coach of wrestling, and he also coached boys basketball and boys and girls track.

When not traveling, he regularly played golf but never kept score, started, then mastered wood carving, read many, many books mostly on sports and military history, and relaxed by playing wordsearch puzzles. He loved to laugh, poking fun at family and friends who returned the same, and most often poked fun at himself.
