Arthur August Schabinger (August 6, 1889 – October 13, 1972) was an American football and basketball coach, and then later administrator. Schabinger is credited (although disputed) with throwing the first forward pass in college football history. Even if it was not the first forward pass, most certainly Schabinger was one of the early adopters and innovators of the play.
Schabinger was the eighth head college football coach for the Ottawa University Braves located in Ottawa, Kansas and he held that position for four seasons, from 1915 until 1919. His career coaching record at Ottawa was 9 wins, 17 losses, and 6 ties. This ranks him 18th at Ottawa in total wins and 23rd at Ottawa in winning percentage (0.281).
