Dan Coe (8 September 1941 – 19 October 1981) was a Romanian football defender.
He was one of several Romanian internationals who ran from the communist regime, to move abroad in the early 1970s. He spent two years in the Jupiler League with Royal Antwerp in Belgium before returning home. In 1981, he settled in Cologne, Germany as a political refugee. Shortly after an interview on Radio Free Europe, Coe was found dead in his apartment on 19 October 1981. The paramedics tried everything possible to reanimate him (open chest cardiac reanimation). His wife and his daughter found him legcuffed and handcuffed hanging in his apartment in Cologne. It was subsequently claimed that he was killed at the behest of the Romanian Securitate, but this has never been proved.
His father Duce Coe was also a footballer and captain of Sportul Studențesc.
His grandfather Sir Adam Coe received the Knighthood from Carol I. King of Romania Karl von Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen) (1866–1914).
