Doug Chapman (born August 22, 1977) is a former running back in the National Football League who was drafted in the third round of the 2000 NFL draft by the Minnesota Vikings, where he played from 2000 to 2003. In his first career start versus the Green Bay Packers, Chapman rushed for 90 yards which was the most allowed by Green Bay on the season. An offensive penalty negated his first 100 yard rushing day. After Minnesota, he signed with the San Diego Chargers in 2004 where he suffered a career ending back injury, and officially retired from the NFL in 2006. He attended Marshall University where he rushed for over 4,000 yards and scored 61 total touchdowns.

Chapman was a color commentator with ESPN and CBS Sports Network from 2008 to 2012. While serving as a college football analyst for Campus Insiders and 120 Sports, Chapman joined the Big Ten Network for the 2013 season as a guest analyst on Big Ten & Beyond, making his debut on September 3, 2013. He currently resides in West Palm Beach, Florida and serves as a Host and Content Specialist for the American Sports Network which is affiliated with Sinclair Broadcast Group.
