Bobby Frazier (born January 20, 1943) is a former American football coach and player. He served as the head football coach at Bethune-Cookman University from 1979 through 1982 and at the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) from 1984 to 1989. As a head coach, Frazier compiled an overall record of 31 wins, 67 losses and 3 ties (31–67–3)

Frazier played quarterback for Bethune-Cookman from 1960 through 1963.[1] During his career as the Wildcats' quarterback, he established many passing records with his 89-yard completion to George Williams against Benedict College in 1962 still being the longest pass play in the history of the program.[2] Following his college career, Frazier played several seasons in minor league baseball, advancing as high as the Phoenix Giants of the Pacific Coast League before beginning his football coaching career.[3]

After serving as an assistant coach from 1973 to 1978, on February 14, 1979, Frazier was promoted to head coach following the resignation of Andy Hinson.[3] During his tenure as the Wildcats head coach, he compiled an overall record of 24 wins, 17 losses and 1 tie (24–17–1).[4] He resigned his position in December 1982 following an internal investigation over player treatment and athletic funding.[5]

In 1984, Frazier returned to the head coaching ranks for the UDC Firebirds. During his tenure from 1984 to 1989, he compiled an overall record of 7 wins, 50 losses and 2 ties (7–50–2). He was fired from his post following the 1989 season, with the UDC program being disbanded altogether for the 1990 season.[6] Presently, Dr. Frazier is a Professor at Edward Waters College in Jacksonville, Florida
