Charles Edward Gauer (September 24, 1941 – October 22, 1973) was a professional football player, and later an assistant coach, for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League. However, he was also a member of the "Steagles," a team that was the result of a temporary merger between the Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers due to the league-wide manning shortages in 1943 brought on by World War II.
