Joseph "Joe" Coyle (born 24 June 1957 in Glasgow) is a Scottish ex-professional football midfielder. His brothers Tommy and Owen also played professionally.

Coyle began his career with non-league Shettleston before signing for Dumbarton in 1977. He remained at Dumbarton until 1982 before moving to Airdrieonians in 1982. However, he soon returned to Boghead Park and was with the Sons for their only season in the Scottish Premier Division. He subsequently played in the Scottish Football League for Greenock Morton, Arbroath and Stranraer before ending his career with non-league Vale of Leven.

Coyle managed Orchard Parkmount, an amateur football club based in Glasgow's south side (founded 1963), winning the Greater Glasgow Premier Division 2010/2011 and the Bobby Thompson Challenge cup 2011/2012 before parting ways during season 2012/2013.[citation needed] He now manages Muirend.[citation needed]
