Harry F. Hazlett was a career officer in the U.S. Army. Prior to that he was an American football coach for the Canton Professionals-Bulldogs of the Ohio League, which was the direct predecessor to the modern National Football League, as well as the head football and basketball coach at Canton McKinley High School. He was fired as the head coach of the Canton Bulldogs, by manager Jack Cusack, after he benched Canton rookie, Jim Thorpe, for first game of the 1915 league title game. The first game in the two game series resulted in a 16-0 victory over the Bulldogs by their rivials, the Massillon Tigers. It is unknown why Hazlett benched Thorpe. Some historians feel it was due to Thorpe, not having time to practice with the team, while others feel that he resented Thorpe's high salary.
