Huff Hall is named after veteran Illinois Athletic Director and Coach, George Huff. From 1901 to 1935, Huff served as the athletic director, and he served as the head football coach from 1895 to 1899 and baseball skipper from 1896 to 1919. Originally dubbed the New Gymnasium, Huff Hall was designed in the Georgian-Revival Style and replaced the Military Drill Hall as the home for the Fighting Illini basketball team. It was named after Huff in 1937, following his death. Today, the legacy of George Huff lives on through the George Huff award. An annual award is given to student-athletes who earn a 3.0 GPA for a full academic year.
