Eugene William "Gene" Shue (born December 18, 1931 in Baltimore, Maryland) is a retired American professional basketball player and coach in the National Basketball Association (NBA). During his playing days he was a 6'2" (1.88 m) 170 lb (77 kg) guard.

Shue attended Towson Catholic High School and the University of Maryland. After graduation, he was drafted in 1954 by the Philadelphia Warriors. During his ten year playing career in the NBA, he was also a member of the New York Knicks, Fort Wayne/Detroit Pistons, and the Baltimore Bullets. He then served 23 years as a head coach in the league. Shue was an All-Star five consecutive times (1958–62) and was named All-NBA First Team once (1960). As a coach, he guided the Philadelphia 76ers to the NBA Finals in 1977, but eventually lost to the Bill Walton-led Portland Trail Blazers. Gene Shue was twice named NBA Coach of the Year.

Shue, who now lives in Marina del Rey, California, currently is a scout for the 76ers.[1]
