Gilmour "Gloomy Gil" Dobie (January 21, 1879–December 23, 1948) was an American football head coach. He was born in Hastings, Minnesota, U.S.

Career

He coached at North Dakota State University, Washington, Navy, Cornell, and Boston College. Dobie achieved his greatest success at the University of Washington, where he had a remarkable 58-0-3 record. During his tenure, Washington had a 39 game winning streak, which is the second longest in NCAA Division I-A football history.cite web|url=http://www.ncaa.org/library/records/football/football_records_book/2006/2006_d1_football_records_book.pdf | title=Official 2006 NCAA Divisions I-A and I-AA Football Record Book | publisher=NCAA | pages = p.109 | format=PDF | accessdate=2007-12-07] His coaching career at Washington also comprised virtually all of Washington's 63 game unbeaten streak — still a college football record.cite web | last = Johnson | first = Derek| title= Dobie, Gilmore (d. 1948) | url=http://www.historylink.org/essays/output.cfm?file_id=3693|date=March 8, 2002|publisher=HistoryLink.org ] cite web|url=http://www.ncaa.org/library/records/football/football_records_book/2006/2006_d1_football_records_book.pdf | title=Official 2006 NCAA Divisions I-A and I-AA Football Record Book | publisher=NCAA | pages = p.110 | format=PDF | accessdate=2007-12-07]
