Charles Warren "Chuck" Noe (November 13, 1924 - December 8, 2003) was an American college basketball coach and broadcaster.

Chuck Noe was a two-sport athlete at the University of Virginia, lettering in both basketball and baseball from 1944-48. Following his collegiate career, Noe played briefly in the Boston Red Sox chain, but his career ended due to a severely dislocated ankle.[1]

Following the early end of his playing career, Noe turned to coaching. After stints at Madison County High School and Hopewell High School (both in Virginia), Noe got his first college head coaching job in 1952 when he was named head coach at the Virginia Military Institute (VMI). Following three years at VMI, Noe moved to the same position at Virginia Tech.

At Virginia Tech, Noe had a successful seven-year stint. His teams went 109-51 and in the 1959–60 season won the Southern Conference regular season championship, beating out West Virginia and star guard Jerry West.[2] In 1962, Noe moved to South Carolina where he accumulated a record of 15-21 in a year and a half.

In 1970, Noe became head basketball coach and athletic director at Virginia Commonwealth University and led the program to division I status. He went 95-42 in six years as head basketball coach at VCU. Following his career as a head coach, Noe became a sports radio host in Richmond, Virginia.[1]

He died on December 8, 2003 in Richmond.[3]
