After the 1950-51 season, Florida State withdrew from the Dixie Conference.
From the Tallahassee Democrat, January 30, 1952, page 10.

Ralph Matherly of Sarasota, has been appointed athletic business manager and head baseball coach at Florida State University. Announcement of the appointment was made today by FSU President Doak S. Campbell.

Matherly is scheduled to take over his new position here on February 8, beginning of the second semester at Florida State. He will be replacing George Haygood, now with the FSU auditing department as athletic business manager, and Charlie Armstrong, who was called back into the U.S. Air Corps last spring, as baseball coach.

Matherly, a former Sarasota High school and Colgate football, basketball and baseball star, has been doing graduate work at Florida State since the fall of 1950. During this period he served two seasons as a graduate assistant football coach, and last spring coached the Florida State tennis team which won the Dixie Conference championship.

Coach Matherly is scheduled to receive his masters degree in education, with a major in physical education, here at the end of the semester.
