Myron E. Fuller (June 4, 1889 – August 31, 1949) was an American football player and coach.

Playing career[edit]

Fuller played football at Yale University in 1910 and graduated from the school in 1911.

Coaching career[edit]

He served as the head coach at Stevens Institute of Technology (1912–1913) Colby College (1914–1915), Haverford School (1916), the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (1920), and Tulane University (1921). He later served as a line coach for the Yale Bulldogs. His 1914 Colby team is considered to be one of the strongest college teams ever in the state of Maine. Colby defeated their opponents by a combined score of 277 to 49, swept in-state rivals Maine, Bowdoin, and Bates, beat Holy Cross 17 to 0, and nearly upset Navy in a 31 to 21 game.[1]

Later life and death[edit]

Fuller left coaching after 1927 to pursue a career in industrial engineering. He died of a heart attack at his home in Mountain Lakes, New Jersey on August 31, 1949 at the age of 60.[2]
