Charles J. "C.J." McCoy was an American college football and basketball coach. McCoy served as the third head coach of the Florida Gators football team and the first head coach of the Florida Gators men's basketball team that represented the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida.


Coaching career

In 1914, McCoy replaced G.E. Pyle as the Florida Gators football coach and held that position for three seasons. From 1914 to 1916, McCoy compiled a 9–10 record.[1] He also served as Florida's first basketball coach during the 1915–1916 season and accumulated a 5–1 record.[2] As measured by his winning percentage (.833), McCoy remains the winningest coach in Gators basketball history. Florida did not field a basketball team for the 1916–1917 season.

After a winless 0–5 football season in 1916, McCoy was replaced as football coach by Alfred L. Buser.
