Murry Bartow (born (1961-08-18)August 18, 1961) is an American college basketball coach and the current the head men's coach at East Tennessee State University. Prior to accepting the head coaching job at ETSU, he served as the head coach for UAB from 1996 to 2002, succeeding his father Gene Bartow, the creator of the Blazers basketball program. At UAB, he compiled a 103–83 record, that included 48 conference wins.

Bartow's first season at ETSU brought division and conference regular season titles and the Southern Conference Tournament championship. The team finished 27–6 (15–1 conference) and ended their season in an 80–77 NCAA tournament opening round loss to the University of Cincinnati. Bartow was named the SoCon Coach of the Year.

Injuries and poor play the next season resulted in a 10–19 finish, in what turned out to be the Bucs final season in the Southern Conference. The following season, the Bucs move to the Atlantic Sun Conference resulted in a disappointing 15–13 record.

Bartow responded by leading the Buccaneers to the regular season Atlantic Sun title in 2006–07 with a 24–10 overall record, despite the graduation of three starters. Bartow was named Atlantic Sun Coach of the Year.

Born in Warrensburg, Missouri, Bartow holds a BA from UAB and a master's degree from Indiana University.
