Ted Cain (born c. 1952) coached in the college football ranks for over 30 years. He is the former offensive coordinator, former special teams coordinator, and former tight-ends coach at Vanderbilt University. He was at Vanderbilt as offensive coordinator and tight ends coach for 9 years under head coach Bobby Johnson whom he followed to Nashville from Furman University, his alma mater, and later as tight-ends coach and special teams coordinator under head coach Robbie Caldwell. He has coached Jay Cutler and Earl Bennett, who were both voted All-SEC during their time in Nashville. Ted Cain started his career in 1977 for the Paladins of Furman University and he remained there until the 1986 season where he took over as North Carolina State's offensive coordinator and tight ends coach.[1] He directed the offense in Raleigh until the 1997 season where he was hired as the head college football coach for the Virginia Military Institute.[2]

Ted Cain was the 27th head college football coach for the Virginia Military Institute Keydets located in Lexington, Virginia and he held that position for two seasons, from 1997 until 1998. His career coaching record at VMI was 1 win, 20 losses, and 0 ties. This ranks him 28th at VMI in total wins and 29th at VMI in winning percentage.[3] He rejoined the staff at Furman following his dismissal.

Ted Cain joined Bobby Johnson at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee for the 2002-2003 season as Offensive Coordinator and Tight Ends Coach. During his time as Offensive Coordinator, he coached some of the best Vanderbilt offenses in school history, especially the 2005-2006 offense led by quarterback Jay Cutler. However, after Cutler's departure, the Vanderbilt offense stagnated somewhat. Despite this, after the 2008-2009 season, Cain was named Assistant Head Coach, Offense. The following year though, on February 11, 2010, after the conclusion of the 2009-2010 football season, and possibly Cain's worst offense, head coach Bobby Johnson announced that Cain had been relieved of his Offensive Coordinator duties and would instead be responsible for coaching tight ends and special teams.[4] He remained in this capacity under Johnson's successor, Head Coach Robbie Caldwell, for the 2010 season. After Caldwell's resignation following the season, Cain was not retained by new Vanderbilt Head Coach James Franklin.
