Edward Francis Dunn (October 1, 1915 – March 2, 1980) was head coach of the University of Miami football program from 1943 to 1944 while previous head coach Jack Harding served in the American military in World War II.

Dunn grew up in Miami, Florida. He was a running back from 1935 to 1939 serving as team captain in 1935 and 1939 of the Miami Hurricanes football team. In 1938, he played in the first Miami-Florida game, scoring all three touchdowns in a 19-7 Miami win. Dunn set several game, single-season and career UM records for rushing, scoring, and punt returns. Dunn went on to serve as head baseball coach from 1946–54, guiding UM to a 82-73-2 record over his nine seasons. His 1947 club went 11-2, followed by his second-best mark of 14-8 in 1949, playing teams from the state of Florida, military bases and around the Southeast.[1] He died at a Florida hospital in 1980 after a long illness.[2]

In 2009, Dunn was inducted into UM's "Ring of Fame." Dunn's son Gary Dunn, who also played football at UM, represented him at the induction.[3]
