Malcolm Lee McBride (August 22, 1878 – December 21, 1941)[1] was an American football player and coach. He played college football at Yale University as a halfback and fullback, and was selected as an All-American in 1898 and 1899. McBride was known for his skill as a left-footed kicker. One newspaper described his punts as follows:

"Malcolm McBride, who was a Yale fullback, was one of the stars of the kicking game in 1899. He sent a long, low punt that was exceedingly hard to handle. It usually struck the ground and bounded some distance before the backs could recover it."[2]

After graduating as part of Yale's class of 1900, McBride returned as the school's head football coach in 1900.[3] McBride's chief adviser as Yale's coach was Walter Camp, and his assistants were Frank Hinkey and Frank Butterworth.[4] McBride coached the 1900 Yale football team to a perfect 12–0 record. The team base been acknowledged as the consensus national champion of the 1900 college football season.[5]

In 1917, McBride was one of the directors of a program on "training camp activities for the promotion of recreative athletics" among soldiers encamped at various locations for participation in World War I.[6]
