Bill Redell (born April 17, 1941) is an American football coach and member of the College Football Hall of Fame. Redell serves as head coach at Oaks Christian High School in Westlake Village, California, since 2000, and has formed them into one of California's best high school football programs. The Oaks Christian Lions finished 6th on the final USA Today prep football Super25 ranking of 2006.[1]

Redell played quarterback at San Marino High School in San Marino, California, earning a scholarship for USC, but later transferred to play at Occidental College in 1962 and 1963.[2] In his two years at Occidental he passed for 1,567 yards and rushed for 1,583. He passed for 11 touchdowns and rushed for eight. He completed 68 percent of pass attempts. He averaged 6.3 yards on each rushing attempt. He played cornerback on defense and had seven pass interceptions in his career. He did the team's punting and place kicking, making 36 of 43 extra-point attempts. He led Occidental to two championships in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and was named to the NAIA All-America team in 1963.

After college, he played six years in the Canadian Football League for the Edmonton Eskimos, Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and Calgary Stampeders. In 1970, he became a football coach. His first jobs were as assistant on the collegiate level at California State University, Fullerton and California Lutheran University. Then he became a head coach at the high school level.[3] He is retiring from Oaks Christian in 2012.

He was also a chief executive officer of Bolton & Co. Insurance Brokers in South Pasadena. He is married and has three sons.[4]
