Charles A. "Shy" Huntington (July 7, 1891 – January 1973)[1] was a quarterback and later a multi-sport coach at the University of Oregon.

Playing and coaching career[edit]

Huntington began his football career as a quarterback and safety at the University of Oregon. He was the critical player in Oregon's Rose Bowl upset over heavily favored Pennsylvania in 1917, throwing a touchdown pass and intercepting three passes on defense as the Ducks won 14–0.[2]

Huntington took over as head coach for the Ducks in 1918, and he remained at the helm for six seasons. He finished with a 26–12–6 record. In 1919, he coached the Ducks to a Rose Bowl berth; they lost to Harvard, 7–6, on January 1, 1920.[2]

He served as Oregon's baseball coach in 1919 and 1920,[3] and he coached the basketball team for one season, 1919–20, achieving a record of eight wins and nine losses.[4]
