Dave Dunipace, IIRC. You can find the term used on the PDGA forums back at least as far as 2005 and it's even in the description of the Destroyer on the Innova site:

The Destroyer is a very fast stable long distance driver. This disc is much like a faster Wraith, but with a little more high and low speed stability. Great disc for sidearm throwers and those with lots of power. Can handle headwinds and throws with off axis torque. Not suggested for beginning players.
You understand what OAT is, but you don't understand how large its effects are. Pretty much anyone who's ever accidentally turned over a disc that isn't understable has shown that you can impart enough OAT on a disc to drastically change it's flight path. Anyone who's worked to eliminate their OAT can show you how they can throw a putter on a hyzer and get it to keep it's angle or throw it on a hyzer and get it to turn and crash into the ground.
