Frank Davis (born 25 August 1944) is a former Australian rules footballer who played for Melbourne in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Davis was educated at Salesian College, Chadstone. He made his debut in Melbourne's premiership winning season of 1964 and despite managing just six games he was a member of the grand final winning team. He usually played in the back pocket and was club captain from 1970 to 1972, earning their best and fairest award in his first season in charge. He also represented Victoria at interstate football during his career.

In 1980 he coached Frankston in the Victorian Football Association, but was sacked due to the team's poor performance before the conclusion of the season.
