Bob Elson and Red Rush both went out to Oakland when Harry came here before the 1971 season.

The A's announced the Elson/Rush hiring soon after the 1970 season ended, but it was several months later before the Sox chose to hire Harry from among a group of candidates that included Vince Doyle from Detroit and Jimmy Dudley from the Seattle Pilots.
