Edgar Ramey Wingard (September 21, 1878 – c. August 1927) was an American football, basketball, and baseball coach and college athletics administrator. He served as the head football coach at six different schools: Butler University (1904–1905), the University of Pittsburgh (1906), Louisiana State University (1907–1908), the University of Maine (1910–1911), Susquehanna University (1916–1917, 1919, 1924–1925), and Bucknell University (1918), compling a career record of 70–34–5. In 1908, Wingard led his LSU team to a record of 10–0. The team has been recognized as a national champion by the National Championship Foundation, although LSU does not officially claim a national title that season. Wingard was the head coach of the basketball team at Butler from 1904 to 1906 and the head coach of the first LSU Tigers basketball team during the 1908–09 season. He also coached the LSU Tigers baseball team in 1908 and 1909 and the baseball team at Maine in 1911.

Wingard died of a cerebral hemorrhage in the summer of 1927 at his home in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania.[3]
