Joe H. McMullen (1923 – September 9, 1983) was an American football player, coach, and collegiate athletics administrator. McMullen coached at Stetson University in the 1950 and 1951 seasons and at Washington & Jefferson College for the 1952 and 1953 seasons. He was head football coach at University of Akron for seven seasons from 1954 through 1960, compiling a 30–28–3 record.
