William J. "Bill" Reinhart (August 2, 1896 – February 1971) was an American college basketball, football, and baseball coach at the George Washington University, the University of Oregon, and the United States Merchant Marine Academy. From 1923 to 1935, he served as the head basketball coach at Oregon. He is the school's second winningest coach with 180 victories. His record through 13 seasons at Oregon was 180–101. He suffered only one losing season. Largely due to his success, Oregon was forced to build McArthur Court to accommodate the large crowds that became fixtures for Ducks games on his watch.[1]

At George Washington, he compiled a 319–237 record in basketball, or .574 winning percentage, including a 23–3 season in 1953–54. His teams twice made the Sweet 16 in the NCAA tournament, in 1954 and 1961, GW's only trips to the Sweet 16 until Mike Jarvis's team in 1993.[2]

Players he coached at GW included NBA Hall of Famer Red Auerbach and former NBA players Joe Holup, Corky Devlin and Gene Guarilia[2] and at Oregon he coached Howard Hobson. Auerbach said Reinhart's coaching and fast break offenses were "15 years ahead of their time."[1]

He also was head football coach at George Washington and the Merchant Marine Academy, assistant football coach at Oregon, and head baseball coach at Oregon and GW.

He is a member of George Washington's athletic hall of fame, inducted in 1993.[2]
