Howard Wayne "Red" Hickey (February 14, 1917 — March 30, 2006) was an American football player and coach who played for two teams and served as head coach for the San Francisco 49ers, where he was most famous for creating the shotgun formation in 1960.
A native of Clarksville, Arkansas, he attended the University of Arkansas, competing as a member of the football and basketball teams, where he won All-Conference accolades in both sports. In 1941, he was a forward on the Razorback team that reached the Final Four teams, even though the tournament format was different from today and didn't end in a four team final. While at the University of Arkansas, Hickey was a member of Xi chapter of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity.
