Okie Blanchard

Claire H. "Okie" Blanchard (also spelled "Oakie") was a collegiate and high school football head coach.

His collegiate coaching career lasted one season, in 1940 with the University of Wyoming's Cowboys. His record was 1–7–1, earning the victory (7–3 over New Mexico) in his initial game, and the tie (scoreless against Colorado State) in his second.

He was more successful as a high school coach, serving in that capacity in Cheyenne, Wyoming for many years. The football stadium at Cheyenne East High School there (which was also used by Cheyenne Central High School until 2000) is named for Blanchard.

Blanchard was a graduate of the University of Wyoming, and in 1968 was one of the recipients of the Distinguished Alumni Award granted by the Alumni Association of that institution. In 1984, Blanchard was elected to the Wyoming Coaches Association Hall of Fame.

Blanchard is deceased.
