Frank Schade (born January 22, 1950) is a high school basketball coach and was a member of the NBA.

As a high school junior, Frank played on the Wausau High School Lumberjacks team which finished as runners-up in the 1967 WIAA Boys Basketball Championship.[1]

While recruited to play for legendary coach Don Haskins at Texas Western (now the University of Texas at El Paso),[2] he returned to Wisconsin to attend the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire where he scored 1599 points from 1969–72.[3] In his final year at Eau Claire, the Blugolds finished as NAIA national runners-up to Kentucky State University [4]

Frank was drafted in the 1972 NBA draft, and played nine games with the Kansas City-Omaha Kings.[5]
