During the war it played red hunter” of the flier Commodores Hermann count in the famous soldier eleven “. Most prominent fellow players were Fritz walter, Alfons Moog and Franz Hanreiter. From this time also the Rufname recruits “Friedrich” for Fritz walter. 1945 came to Eppenhoff with his Schalker association comrade walter Zwickhofer into Russian war shank from that it only at the end of March 1949 returned home and directly into the league crew of Schalke introduction held.
In the upper league west succeeded then to Schalke 04 in the season 1950/51 the title gain and in the final round around the German championship was Eppenhoff in all six plays in the employment, also with 3:2 home victory - the victory gate succeeded to him in the 88. Minute against the coming master 1. Fiber plastic Kaiserslautern to 10. June 1951. In the season 1951/52 one became vice-master in the west and could deny therefore also further plays in the final round. In the round 1955/56 it terminated its career after two meniscus operations with Schalke. Its last large appearing as players was the final around the DFB cup 1955, which lost its crew however with 2:3 against the Karlsruher sports club.
Borussia Dortmund 1961-1965
after three-year work in the 2. League west with the sport friends Gladbeck got Borussia Dortmund to the ex-Schalker as a successor to 1860 Munich of the max of Merkel in the summer, moved, 1961 as a coach to the boron IGP rubber strip. He built the two beginners Wolfgang Paul (VfL of swords), gotten from the amateur camp, and William storm (union Günnigfeld) successfully into the master formation in, reached however with Borussia only the 8. Rank in the conclusion table. In the second season as BVB coaches then achieving vice-titles behind that the 1 succeeded. Fiber plastic Cologne. Of the SpVgg Marl right outside Reinhold Wosab which was added had become immediately a very good addition of “Aki” Schmidt , Jürgen contactor , Friedhelm Konietzka and Gerd the Cyliax and the coaches had thereby in the offensivea torgefährlichen storm for the order. Since also the defensive with the two goal keepers Heinz Kwiatkowski and Bernhard Wessel, whom to defenders Lothar Geisler and William castle Mueller and the runners Dieter cure advice, Wolfgang Paul, Wilhelm storm and Helmut broke their man, was one for the final round 1963 prepared. It succeeded then to 29. June in the final with a 3:1 victory against the 1. Fiber plastic Cologne actually the profit of the German championship. For this the coach Eppenhoff contributed particularly with the successful form price increase during the final round and the final game as summit completely substantially. The 1. Fiber plastic Cologne was from the player potential, an upper league crew occupied strongly far over the average. The title defense was for the Domstädter nearly obligation. The 90 minutes of the final shorten then however the earned master Borussia Dortmund. Since starting from the new season 1963/64 in the federal league the championship was delivered for the first time, to Italy Jürgen contactor had to replace gate hunters moved away to which, this time the beginners came not only from the amateur camp. From Moenchengladbach the Mittelstürmer Franz Brungs came and for the gate came from Herne of the national goalkeepers Hans Tilkowski. Burghardt Rylewicz of the VfB Oldenburg completed the new acquisitions. In the federal league it did not run for the BVB after plan. In the gate all three goal keepers were used. It was enough only to fourth rank. In the Europe Cup the Eppenhoff set - favorites however in this round 63/64 gloss lights. Clear 5:0 and 4:0 successes against Benfica Lisbon and Dukla Prague were together with the argument in the semi-final with inter Milan thereby the high points. In the second year federal league 64/65 could be improved the point account and rank, but 36:24 points were enough only to the 3. Rank. One had obligated for the centre zone Rudi Assauer of the SpVgg heart and Hermann Straschitz of Fortuna Duesseldorf, the whole large reinforcement represented however none at first attempt. However the triumph in the DFB cup succeeded. To 22. One won May 1965 with 2:0 gates (1: 0 Schmidt, 2:0 Emmerich) in Hanover against the regional lyingists Alemannia Aachen the final game. This title gain was for to 4. May 1964 of the BVB Notvorstand at that time already times irresponsibly quit coach Hermann Eppenhoff a confirmation for its kind of working without loud of tones and with the accompanying humanity.
MSV Duisburg 1965-1967
in the third season federal league 1965/66 he transferred then the vice-master of the starting yearly, avoid Eric ago the sports association (renaming in MSV Duisburg took place to the 1. January 1966). With 70:48 gates one came on 36:32 points and ranked thereby on that 8. Place. In the DFB cup 1966 one arrived into the final game against the fiber plastic Bavaria Munich. After very good play - it succeeded to the young Mittelstürmer Ruediger Mielke 28 in. Minute 1:0 guidance for the “Zebras” - the Mannen sat down around Franz basin farmer in the end earned with 4:2 gates through. In the second season in avoiding Erich the level could be kept no longer complete, with 33:35 points platzierte itself one on that to 11. Rank of the table. For the work of Eppenhoff however beyond these ranks, inserting the MSV talents Michael Bella, Ruediger Mielke and Detlef jetty victory spoke. Tragically for the storm talent Mielke (it obtained in 13 employments of the round 65/66 in the league of 14 gates and in the cup met it also still three times into the black!) was which it due to injury more to a play for the MSV never accumulate should.
VfL Bochum 1967-1972
the president Ottokar wild wanted with its VfL into the federal league. But the continuous structure coach Eppenhoff straight seemed to it quite. First being able the man from Schalke disbursed itself 1968 however in the DFB cup . Over the federal lyingists Karlsruher sports club, VfB Stuttgart, Borussia Moenchengladbach and the fiber plastic Bavaria Munich he drew with the VfL players into the cup final game 1968. The final to 9. June 1968 in Ludwigshafen went then against the 1. Fiber plastic Cologne with 1:4 gates quite clearly lost, it diminished however nevertheless not the success of the regional lyingists in this competition. In the second year one moved on the 3. To get rank forwards around then 1970 the desired championship to the Castroper road. In the ascent round one failed however because of the class crew of the Offenbacher of kicker. Also in the round 1970/71 one got the championship in the regional league west. Now the ascent round was completed however with success. With 14:2 points the long hoped for ascent was managed into the federal league. In the federal league the beginner in the round 1971/72 struck himself very considerably. With the balanced point account of 34:34 one ranked 9 on that. Place of the conclusion table. In the back round one had been able to conquer 20:14 with 32:29 gates points and the public favourite Hans Walitza in the storm point 22 gates to it had contributed. Coach Eppenhoff had worked also in Bochum without the financially spectacular Tranfers, talents had inserted or to Routiniers stimulated to new acts and nevertheless thereby combination football with heart play to let.
starting from the season worked the man from the Kohlenpott then in the swabia country at the VfB Stuttgart. There the master coach Branko Zebec in the rounds 70/71 and 71/72 had not had hoped for success. Over in the table to forward come one put also new players to the new coach at the disposal. This were:
- Dieter Brenninger (Young Boys Berne)
- Norbert victory man (Tasmania 1900 Berlin)
- Herwarth Koppenhöfer (Bavaria Munich)
- Hermann Lindner (1860 Munich, amateurs)
- Helmut Roleder (own youth)
- Dieter Schwemmle (own amateurs)
Eppenhoff succeeded it to the VfB by the obtained 6. To lead place into the Europe Cup. Now however the VfB presidency with the senator Hans Weitpert stepped as a president at the point on the brake. The successful storm of the season 1972/73 with Dieter Schwemmle (33 Spiele-6 of gates), Wolfgang franc (26 Spiele-11 of gates) and refuge ouple (29 Spiele-11 of gates) turned completely in the summer 1973 the VfB Stuttgart the back. This was a glaring sporty backward step. On the map inexpensive new generation talents at the hand of a qualified coach were set completely. Came:
- Hermann Ohlicher (FV Ravensburg)
- Heinz Stickel (SpVgg Ludwigsburg)
- Markus Elmer (own amateurs)
- Klaus Jank (own amateurs)
- hitting a corner hard Mueller (own amateurs)
- Arno shepherd (own youth)
- Bernd shepherd (own youth)
the round ran altogether sportily well, in particular in the UEFA Cup. In the federal league it went however nevertheless backwards, one came only on 31:37 points and landed thereby on place 9. In the UEFA Cup one arrived with the young players then even into the semi-final. Over Nikosia, Tatran Presov, direct current generator Kiew and Vitoria Setubal one played oneself into the two meetings against Feyenoord Rotterdam. In the first leg there was knappe a 1:2 defeat in Rotterdam, in the replay could the dutchmen a 2:2 over the time save, thus Eppenhoff and its players scarcely because of the introduction to the final had failed. The achievement in the European competition was however an act of coach and crew, which can be rated highly. Hermann Ohlicher had waved off from the FV Ravensburg directly into the federal league to 33 employments with 17 gates, that was already a very good development. In the summer 1974 it pulled away then also the spielerisch talented and in addition run-strong midfield player Karl-Heinz glove from the Neckar. It went then actually in the season 74/75 downward in the table, at the 1. December 1974 was expressed the coach the dismissal. Oldinternational Albert erkorene to the rescuer sing could not however in the back round the trend not stop and to the VfB descended at the round end from the federal league. President Weitpert and the chairman of the board of directors, min. - director Gerhard May he aprons, were not completely indifferent surely at coming off sporty scooping out of the cadre by the outlets.
