Norman Christopher Barry (December 25, 1897 – October 13, 1988) was an American football coach. He was the head coach for the National Football League's Chicago Cardinals from 1925 to 1926. With Norman Barry as head coach the Cardinals outdistanced a field of 20 teams to win their first NFL championship in 1925 by virtue of the league's best record. In two seasons, he compiled a record of 16–10–2. Prior to his coaching career, he played in the early NFL for the Cardinals, Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Badgers.

Barry was George Gipp's teammate at the University of Notre Dame and was a three-term member of the Illinois State Senate and a Cook County judge for 25 years.
