Philip Heckman Arbuckle (September 6, 1882 – June 11, 1932) was an American football, basketball, and baseball coach and college athletics administrator. He served as the head football coach at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas from 1908 to 1911, Rice University from 1912 to 1917 and 1919 to 1923, and Louisiana Tech University in 1924, compiling a career college football coaching record of 60–44–14. At Rice he tallied a 51–25–8 record. His 1919 team went 8–1, to mark his best season. His only losing season at Rice came in 1923. In 1924, he coached at Louisiana Tech, where he compiled a 1–6–1 record.

Arbuckle died in Houston, Texas, on June 11, 1932, of a pulmonary embolism caused by subacute bacterial endocarditis.[1]

Rice University

Arbuckle served as Rice University's first athletic director and football coach in 1912. His teams played against local high schools until Rice joined the Southwest Conference in 1914.[2] Arbuckle also served as the head coach of the baseball, basketball and track teams and taught English and history. He was succeeded by John Heisman in 1924 and inducted into the Rice Athletic Hall of Fame in 1975.[3]
