Henry Russell Cohen (February 13, 1893 – April 7, 1981) was an American football coach and college athletics administrator. Cohen played as a prominent end for Dan McGugin's Vanderbilt Commodores football teams, serving as captain of its "point-a-minute" SIAA champion 1915 team. He was selected All-Southern the same year.[1] He was the head football coach at Louisiana State University from 1928 to 1931[2] and at the University of Cincinnati from 1935 to 1937, compiling a career record of 31–25–4. As was tradition for football coaches at the time, he also served as the athletics director at LSU during his tenure as head football coach. His record with the LSU Tigers was 23–13–1. With the Cincinnati Bearcats, he compiled an 8–12–3 mark.[3]
