Joseph "Joe" Susan (born September 18, 1955) is an American football coach and former player. He is the current head football coach at the Bucknell University. Susan's second coaching stint at Bucknell (he was an assistant from 1981–1989) came on the heels of a nine-year tenure as the Rutgers Scarlet Knights offensive line and tight ends coach. He has been a head coach at one other school—Davidson College, where he led the Wildcats to the program's only perfect season, in 2000. Susan only stayed at Davidson for one season.

Susan grew up in South River, New Jersey and played college football at the University of Delaware from 1973 to 1976; his senior season he was named the Newark Touchdown Club Offensive Lineman of the Year. The Fightin' Blue Hens won two Lambert Cups and were the NCAA Division II runners-up during his playing tenure.[1]
