Ray Nagel was the eighth professional head coach of the University of Utah Utes football team. His tenure lasted eight seasons from 1958 to 1965, during which the Utes went 42–39–1 (21–17–1 in conference play). The most successful season under his tenure was 1964, when the Utes tied for the conference championship and won the 1964 Liberty Bowl. In 1962, the Skyline Conference dissolved when the Utes and three other teams left to form the Western Athletic Conference.
