Coach Rocky Knute is a fictional character from the rather fertile imagination of Jay Ward. He was based loosely on the real-life coach at Notre Dame, Knute Rockne. He was the coach at Wossamotta U., where Bullwinkle J. Moose and his sidekick, Rocket J. "Rocky" Squirrel, attended on a football scholarship. Their big game was against the Mud City Manglers, a group of thugs dressed in drag that Boris Badenov assembled to bet on—and beat—Wossamotta's football team. Since they looked like girls, Rocky and Bullwinkle (and team) were a little reluctant to play them—until the deception was uncovered.
Coach Rocky Knute was voiced by Paul Frees.
