Mr. Michael was the son of the late James Edward and Marjorie Alma Knott Michael.
He was a graduate of Juniata College.
He was a coach for Caesar Rodney High School. He arrived at Ceasar Rodney High in 1928 after lettering in football, basketball and baseball at Juniata College, Pa. From 1928 to 1943, he coached football, baseball, girls and boys basketball, soccer and track at CR.
Pop Michael was CR's greatest all-around coach. His track team won the county meet at Harrington every year until it was discontinued. His baseball and boys basketball teams went to state tournament finals. His girls basketball teams won 64 of 66 games in a five-year span ending in 1936, and in 1935 they won the last Delaware state girls basketball championship until it was later restored in the 1980s. Although his soccer teams were successful, Pop pushed to have football revived, fielding his first team in 1932. The team's 2-7 record included a 53-0 loss to Dover and a 7-0 win over Dover, as the most heated of all Delaware school rivalries began. The Riders were 6-2 in 1933, losing only to Dover and Laurel. After a 1935 Thanksgiving Day win over Dover, the Rider-Senator competition heated up to such a extent (including violence) that it was temporarily suspended five years later. Michael lauded players Eddie Graham, Jack Larrimore, Nat Taylor, Johnny Miller, Robert Bilow, Harold Bennett and Bill Brown as ''some of the best I ever coached.'' His 1941 grid team finished 4-1-1 and his last team in 1942 was 2-1-2. He later opened a sandwich shop across from the school where one of his frequent visitors was the former Dottie Spence, one of his mid-'30s basketball stars, and her husband, a young actor named Robert Mitchum, from Felton. He returned to teaching and coaching in 1956 at Smyrna High School where he guided the JV basketball and baseball teams.
He retired permanently in 1968. He then took up golf. After two years he was shooting in the '70s and '80s. For his legacy, ''Pop'' will always be remembered and revered as the ''Father of Caesar Rodney Football.''
