James K. "Pat" Dwyer (August 30, 1884 – March 29, 1939) was an American football player and coach. He served as the head coach at Louisiana State University (1911–1913) and the University of Toledo (1923–1925), compiling a career record of 28–22–2.
Dwyer was a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania. He lettered in football two seasons, 1906 and 1907, for Penn under coach Carl Sheldon Williams. In 1906, Dwyer helped the Quakers to a 7–2–3 record. In 1907, Penn went 11–1, and was retroactively awarded a national championship by Parke H. Davis with other organizations naming Yale as champion. These Penn teams were led by All-Americans August Ziegler at guard and Dexter Draper at tackle.
Dwyer died in 1939 of a heart attack.
