Murry Bartow (born (1961-08-18)August 18, 1961) is an American college basketball coach, most recently 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 University of Alabama at Birmingham (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.

Bartow led 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.

NCAA tournamnet appearances earned by automatic bid for winning A-Sun Conference Tournament championship followed the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons.

Overall, Bartow lead the Bucs to three NCAA appearances in his tenure at ETSU. A five season drought with declining performance and increasing fan apathy led to his dismissal after the 2014-15 season.

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