Edwin H. "Doc" Schutte (July 9, 1906 – September 22, 1985)[1] was an American basketball coach and dentist. While living in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, Schutte was a full-time dentist who had graduated from Marquette University.[2] In 1937–38 he coached the Sheboygan Enzo Gels, a semi-professional basketball team.[1] When local Sheboygan business leaders put together a community team to join the National Basketball League in order to compete with their in-state rival, the Oshkosh All-Stars, they selected Schutte to lead the new team, the Sheboygan Red Skins.[1] Although the team started the 1938–39 season well, they did not maintain success, finished with an 11–17 record and missed the playoffs.[1] Schutte stepped down from coaching after the first season.[2]
