James 'Jim' Crowe (18 May 1909 – 21 May 1979)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played for Carlton and Collingwood in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Crowe started his career as a half forward flanker before being moved into defence as a rebound player. He was a member of Carlton's losing 1932 Grand Final side and in 1936 crossed to Collingwood. In his first year with Collingwood he played in a premiership, occupying a back pocket in the Grand Final.

In 1947 he coached Footscray for a season, with the club finishing ninth out of the twelve clubs.
