Troy Morrell (born March 23, 1971) was an American football coach for Butler Community College from 1996-2014. He served as the head coach at Butler from 2000-2014, and led the Grizzlies to three national titles during that span while coaching numerous future NFL player and coaches like Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor and Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson.[1][2]

Morrell's junior college head coaching record is 154-22, and is second in all-time winning percentage at .875 percent only behind Buddy Stephens of East Mississippi Community College. After the 2014 season, Morrell resigned from his head coaching position and took a job in private business.[2][3]
