Charles A. "Jack" West (c. 1890 – October 29, 1957) was an American football, Canadian football, and basketball coach and college athletics administrator. He served as the head football coach at South Dakota State College of Agricultural and Mechanic Arts—now South Dakota State University—from 1919 to 1927 and at the University of North Dakota from 1928 to 1941 and again in 1945, compiling a career college football record of 134–55–14. West was also the head basketball coach at South Dakota State from 1919 to 1926 and at North Dakota during the 1944–45 season, amassing a career college basketball record of 74–66. He coached football teams to 11 North Central Conference titles, three at South Dakota State and eight at North Dakota. In addition, he served as North Dakota's athletic director from 1928 to 1946. West left the college ranks in 1946 to become head coach of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, then of the Western Interprovincial Football Union, now a division of the Canadian Football League.[1] He died at the age of 67 on October 29, 1957 at his home in Grand Forks, North Dakota.[2]
