Ron Stratten (b. 1943 in San Francisco, California) was the head coach for the Portland State Vikings college football team from 1972 to 1974. He compiled an overall record of 9-24 in three seasons. Stratten was one of the first African American head football coaches at a university with a majority white enrollment.
Stratten resigned after three seasons due to the team's poor performance. He was succeeded by Mouse Davis, the offensive coordinator he had hired a year earlier. After leaving coaching, he worked for the NCAA's education services division, and is now retired and living in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Stratten grew up in San Francisco and attended Lowell High School, where he played linebacker and fullback. He played college football for the University of Oregon from 1961 to 1963, and was the Ducks' defensive line coach from 1968 to 1971.
