James M. Lyall (born June 25, 1952) is an American football coach and former player. He was most recently the head football coach at Siena Heights University, a position he held from 2011 until May 2016. Lyall was the head football coach at Adrian College from 1990 to 2009. He played college football as a defensive tackle for the University of Michigan under head coach Bo Schembechler from 1970 to 1973.
Lyall was fired In November 2009. The program had improved considerably over the previous eight years, with a vastly improved roster, a 55–25 record, and five runner-up finishes in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association. Jim Deere, an assistant coach under Lyall, was hired as the new head coach.
