Michael David Neu (born December 29, 1970) is the head coach of the Ball State Cardinals football team at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. Before taking that position in January 2016, he was the quarterbacks coach for the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League. Previously he was a quarterback in the Arena Football League and head coach of the New Orleans VooDoo.

Neu was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, attended high school at Perry Meridian High School, and graduated from Ball State. In 1993, Neu was named the Mid-American Conference Offensive Player of the Year.[1]

In the Arena Football League, he was head coach of the New Orleans VooDoo, as well as a former head coach of the defunct Carolina Cobras. He had a 13-15 record with the Cobras, and had a 32-31 record with the VooDoo. During the 2006 AFL season, while the VooDoo suspended operations for the season, he worked as a professional scout for the National Football League's New Orleans Saints.

In 2014, Neu left his job as quarterbacks coach with the Tulane Green Wave football team, to take the same position with the Saints.[2]

On January 7, 2016, Neu was announced as the new head coach at Ball State, filling the position most recently held by Pete Lembo.[3]
