The 2011 Richmond Spiders football team represented the University of Richmond during the 2011 NCAA Division I FCS football season. Richmond competed as a member of the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) under interim head football coach Wayne Lineburg and played its home games at E. Claiborne Robins Stadium.

Latrell Scott, who was entering his second season as the head coach at Richmond, resigned on August 23, 2011, just ten days before the team's opening game. Offensive coordinator Wayne Lineburg was named interim head coach for the 2011 season.[1]
