Greg Frey (born January 29, 1968 in Cincinnati, Ohio) is a former college football player. He is currently a football announcer and high school football assistant coach.

Frey is a 1986 graduate of St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati,[1] where he was a stand-out quarterback. As a three-year starting quarterback for the Ohio State Buckeyes, he is best remembered for leading the team to two remarkable come-from-behind wins. On September 24, 1988, he rallied Ohio State from a 33–20 deficit in the final four minutes to a 36–33 victory over the ninth-ranked LSU Tigers. On October 28, 1989, the Buckeyes were losing 31–0 to the Minnesota Golden Gophers. Frey brought the team back for a 41–37 win, throwing a total of 362 yards (331 m).

Frey later spent a three-year stint as the offensive coordinator for Pickerington High School North, engineering an offense that pushed the team closer to the postseason than any other team in Pickerington history. He currently offers private coaching services for high school quarterbacks. His best-known client was Denver Broncos quarterback Brady Quinn.

An accomplished color analyst, Frey broadcast Fox Sports coverage of the AFL's Columbus Destroyers and now calls high school football games on the SportsTime Ohio television network.
