Dino Babers (born July 19, 1961) is an American college football coach and former player. He is currently the head coach at Bowling Green State University (BGSU), a position he assumed in December 2013. Babers previously served in the same capacity at Eastern Illinois University (EIU) from 2012 to 2013 where he compiled a record of 19 wins and seven losses.

Babers grew up in California and attended the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa where he played several positions on the football team. He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Hawaiʻi in 1984.

After four years as an assistant at Baylor, on December 9, 2011, Babers was named as the new head football coach at Eastern Illinois University to replace Bob Spoo.[1]

On December 18, 2013, Babers was hired as the new head coach at Bowling Green following the departure of previous Falcons' coach Dave Clawson to Wake Forest.[2]
