L. B. Harvey was an American football coach. He served as the third head football coach at Mississippi A&M (now known as Mississippi State University) for the 1901 season. Harvey was brought over from Georgetown College to serve as player-coach for the 1901 squad. During his one-season tenure, Harvey compiled an overall record of two wins, two losses and one tie (2–2–1). One of his two victories is notable for being the first against rival Mississippi in what was later dubbed the Egg Bowl in their first all-time meeting.
