Ronald E. Feiereisel (August 6, 1931–January 28, 2000) was an American basketball player and coach.

A 6'3" guard, Feiereisel starred at DePaul Academy in Chicago before playing for Ray Meyer at DePaul University from 1950 to 1953. As a senior, he was an honorable mention All-American after averaging 18 points per game.[1]

After college, Feiereisel had a brief professional career with the Minneapolis Lakers of the NBA.[2] He then began his coaching career with DePaul Academy, and led the school to the 1959 Chicago Catholic League title. After a stint as an assistant to Ray Meyer, Feiereisel moved on to St. Viator High School, where he became the school's first boys' basketball coach. He then became a referee for the American Basketball Association and Big Ten Conference.[3] In 1980, he returned to DePaul to become their women's basketball coach. Over four seasons, he posted a 61-57 record.[1]

Feiereisel died at age 68 in 2000.[1]
