The 2015 Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles football team represented Tennessee Technological University in the 2015 NCAA Division I FCS football season. They were led by ninth-year head coach Watson Brown and played their home games at Tucker Stadium. They were a member of the Ohio Valley Conference. They finished the season 4–7, 3–5 in OVC play to finish in sixth place.

The game against Eastern Kentucky originally scheduled for October 10 was played two days earlier at Toyota Stadium in Georgetown, Kentucky[1] due to campus safety concerns in the wake of threatening graffiti in a campus restroom and other threats allegedly made over social media.[2]

On December 2, head coach Watson Brown announced his retirement.[3] He finished at Tennessee Tech with a nine-year record of 42–60.
