Allen Gauthier McCants (August 20, 1875 – December 14, 1953) was an American football player and coach. He served as the head football coach at the University of Alabama in 1897. McCants was also a player for Alabama's inaugural football team in 1892. Due to a ban the university had placed on athletic teams traveling off campus, McCants' 1897 team only played one game, a 6–0 victory over the Tuscaloosa Athletic Club. As a further result of the ban, Alabama did not field a team in 1898. When the ban was lifted and football was resumed in 1899, W. A. Martin was named as the new head coach.
