David Ross (born November 18, 1959) is a former American football player and coach. He was most recently an assistant coach for the UTSA Roadrunners football team. Ross served as the head football coach at Bacone College from 2001 to 2005, compiling a record of 27–26. He has also served as head football coach at the junior college and high school levels.
Ross began his coaching career at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M Junior College in Miami, Oklahoma in 1982 after graduating from Central Methodist College in Fayette, Missouri. Ross was then hired by Jimmy Johnson (Oklahoma State, Miami, Dallas Cowboys, Miami Dolphins) in 1984 where his association with Larry Coker began. Coker is now the head coach at UTSA. Ross left Oklahoma State to become the assistant head coach/defensive coordinator at his college alma mater in 1987. In 1988 Ross was hired to be the head football coach at his high school alma mater, William Chrisman High School and inherited a 30-game losing streak, at that time the longest in the nation.
