Richard "Dick" Bowman (born 1931; died April 2, 1983[1]) was an American professional football player and football coach. After attending Ponca City High School in Oklahoma, Bowman played collegiate football at the University of Oklahoma. Following a stint serving for the U.S. Army, he briefly played for the New York Giants in the NFL, before earning a Master's degree while concurrently serving as a graduate assistant coach for his alma mater, Oklahoma.[1]

He went on to coach several high school and college football teams.
