Professional Football Player, Coach. A native of Hickeytown, Arkansas, he played the positions of both offensive end and defensive end for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1941, Cleveland Rams in 1945, and the Los Angeles Rams from 1945 to 1948. He was also an Assistant Coach to the Los Angeles Rams in 1951, Coach of the San Francisco 49ers from 1959 to 1963, and was an assistant and scout for the Dallas Cowboys for more then 20 years before retiring. In 1960, Hickey invented the 'shotgun offense.' The 'shotgun offense' consisted of a punt formation, a spread passing attack, and a double-wing formation. He passed away from natural causes, in Aptos, California, at the age of 89. (bio by: K)
