Longtime Dayton, Wright State assistant Ehler dies at 82

Jim Ehler was a kind man indeed. I got to know him very well since the time I started covering the Dayton Flyers basketball team during the later years of the Don Donoher era from 1983-1990. He always thanked me for driving the 85 miles from Columbus to Dayton for each home game.

After leaving UD,  Ehler took his experience 20 miles up the road to Fairborn, a Dayton suburb, to help another coaching legend, Ralph Underhill at Wright State University. Coach Ehler was glad that I was able to give the Raiders equal coverage as the Flyers. He spent eight years with the Raiders.

He then followed Jim Brown, longtime Wright State assistant coach to Northmont High School in the Dayton suburb of Clayton, to work as an assistant coach for 13 years.

Ehler retired from coaching with the Northmont Thunderbolts following the 2009-2010 season.

Earlier this week, that kind gentleman, Jim Ehler, died of a heart attack at the age of 82.

Ehler was the athletic director at Fairmont East High School before joining Donoher’s staff in 1971. The always smiling-coach stayed as the Flyers assistant for 17 years and was able to witness several great players like Roosevelt Chapman, Allen Elijah, Donald Smith, Mike Sylvester, Ed Young and several big wins in the program’s history over Oklahoma, Washington and LSU.

Ehler was also a fixture in the Dayton area as a track and field official. He is a member of the Ohio Track & Field Hall of Fame.

He is survived by his wife, Judy, son Michael and two grandchildren.
