George Ottinger Romney (December 12, 1892 – May 1973) was the third head football coach at Brigham Young University (BYU). He coached for nine years from 1928-1936. His overall record at BYU was 42-33-5. His best year in coaching was in 1932 when he went 8-1 and took second in the Rocky Mountain Conference.[1] Montana State University honored Romney by naming the first Gymnasium built on campus after him. Although later replaced as the main sports facility by a large multipurpose field house named for John "Brick" Breeden, the Romney Gymnasium still stands on the main quad of the Bozeman campus and houses many intermural sports and physical fitness classes.
