Theron Upson "Tule" Lyman (September 7, 1869 – September 21, 1939) was a college football player and coach. He was also the chief examiners of claims of the Travelers Life Insurance Company of Hartford, Connecticut.
He was the coach of the team as well in 1891, in addition to coaching Nebraska. One account reads "Iowa had an eleven and had a coach, and wanted to play the upstarts from across the Missouri River...So, with a magnanimity seldom equaled in the game's history, Iowa lent its coach, T. U. Lyman, to tutor the Nebraskans."
Parke H. Davis was coach in 1893.
