Maurice "Red" Elder (March 21, 1916 - August 14, 2011) was an American football and baseball coach. He served as the head football coach at Colorado State University-Pueblo (CSU-Pueblo) from 1946 to 1951.[1]

Elder was a fullback at Kansas State University in the mid-1930s, where he played on the conference champion 1934 Kansas State Wildcats football team. He was drafted by the Washington Redskins of the National Football League (NFL) in 1937 but dropped out of training camp and, instead, pursued a career in coaching.

Elder was the maternal grandfather of NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia.[2]
