Eugene Hoffman "Red" Edwards (March 15, 1904—December 22, 1981) was an American football player and coach.

After graduating from Weston High School in Weston, West Virginia, Edwards would play quarterback for Knute Rockne at the University of Notre Dame. As a two-year starter, he would lead the team to a record of 7-2-1 in 1925, and 9-1 as a captain in 1926.

Later in his career, while coaching at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, Edwards was offered the head coaching position for the Pittsburgh Steelers by owner Art Rooney, but he would decline. In 1956, he and his wife Sarah (née Brewster) returned to his home town of Weston to accept a position with Citizens Bank, where he would eventually become Chairman of the Board of Directors in 1968.

Edwards was inducted into the West Virginia Sports Hall of Fame in 1970.
