Berry M. Whitaker ((1890-10-22)October 22, 1890 – January 10, 1984(1984-01-10)) was an American college football and basketballcoach. He also organized one of the nation's first university intramural programs at The University of Texas at Austin. Whitaker served as the school's football head coach from 1920 to 1922 and as its basketball head coach for the 1920 season. Whitaker retired from coaching after the 1922 season, citing the physical toll that the stress of defeats took on him and also his desire to return to the work he most enjoyed—directing the University's intramural sports program, which he would do until 1960. The UT intramural fields were named in Whitaker's honor following their relocation and expansion in 1967. Whitaker was inducted into the Longhorn Hall of Honor in 1977.
