John Frederick "Johnny" Bryan (February 28, 1897 – July 1, 1966) was a professional football player for the Chicago Cardinals, the Chicago Bears, and the Milwaukee Badgers. He was also a player-coach and franchise owner of the Badgers from 1925 until 1926.

The Badgers franchise was turned over to Bryan after it was discovered that the team had employed four Chicago high school players for game against the Chicago Cardinals that resulted in a 59-0 loss for the Badgers. As a result of the scandal, owner Ambrose McGuirk was forced by NFL President Joe Carr to turn over his franchise to Bryan.

Under Bryan, the team did manage to win two games in 1926 due to the arrival of end Lavern Dilweg. However Milwaukee dropped out of the NFL after that season.
