Brian Harold Billick (born February 28, 1954) is a National Football League game analyst for Fox, and is also an analyst for the network's Bowl Championship Series coverage. He was previously an NFL coach, most recently with the Baltimore Ravens from January 19, 1999 to December 31, 2007. Billick led the Ravens to a 34–7 victory over the New York Giants in Super Bowl XXXV, the franchise's only Super Bowl appearance. He was also notable for being the offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings (1992-1998) when they broke the then scoring record in the 1998 season.

Billick, who played football and basketball at Redlands High School in Redlands, California, had his No. 17 jersey retired by the school in March 2001. He played both quarterback and cornerback in high school and holds the state record with 21 career interceptions.

After spending his freshman season as a linebacker at the United States Air Force Academy, Billick transferred to Brigham Young University and became a tight end. He later told friends that he left the Air Force Academy because he learned, after he'd already enrolled, that his height and size (6-foot-4, 230 lb.) precluded him from ever becoming a fighter pilot. He received All-Western Athletic Conference and honorable mention All-America honours in 1976.
