Bernie H. Moore (April 30, 1895 – November 6, 1967) was an American college football, basketball, track and field coach and college athletics administrator. He served as the head football coach at Mercer University (1926–1928) and Louisiana State University (1935–1947). Moore was also the head basketball coach at Mercer (1926–1928) and the head track and field coach at LSU (1930–1947). He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1952.
In addition to two Southeastern Conference (SEC) championships in football won at LSU, his track and field teams won twelve SEC titles and the national championship in 1933. LSU's Bernie Moore Track Stadium is named in his honor.
After ending his tenure at LSU, the longest of any coach at the university to that point, Moore became SEC Commissioner in 1948. In 1967, he won the inaugural James J. Corbett Memorial Award given by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics. He was inducted into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame in 1966. His last residence was the Henderson Clark-Moore House in Winchester, Tennessee.
