William "Bill" Hindman (July 15, 1922 – July 9, 1999) was a veteran American actor primarily in the major professional theatres in South Florida. He also appeared in New York theater. Hindman, however, was best known for his role as the older, good-humored Coach Goodenough in 1980's teen film trilogy Porky's.
Mr. Hindman, a Toledo, OH native raised in Columbus, began acting while attending high school at the former North High School there and continued acting while majoring in Chinese at The Ohio State University. After his discharge from the United States Marine Corps during World War II, he worked at Columbus' WCOL radio (also see WCOL-FM) and at WLW-C (now WCMH-TV), the city's NBC affiliate.
Mr. Hindman was the father of Miami Herald theatre critic Christine Dolen. Mr. Hindman was also the brother of Hugh Hindman, former Ohio State University Athletic Director best known for terminating the employment of legendary Ohio State University Football Coach Woody Hayes in 1978.
