Richard Manual Jauron (born October 7, 1950 in Peoria, Illinois) is a former American football coach. His most recent head coaching job was for the Buffalo Bills from 2006 until November 2009. Jauron has previously held head coaching positions with the Chicago Bears and, on an interim basis, with the Detroit Lions. Jauron was named the AP Coach of the Year in 2001 after leading the Bears to a 13-3 record, but this was his only winning season as a head coach in the NFL.

Jauron attended Swampscott High School in Swampscott, Massachusetts, and was a letterman in football, basketball, and baseball. In football, he was a Parade All-American selection as a senior, and was featured in the November 1968 issue of Sport magazine as Teenage Athlete Of The Month. He has been honored as one of the top ten all-time Massachusetts high school football players by the Boston Globe.

Jauron rushed for 2,947 yards at Yale, setting a school record that stood from 1973 to 2000, and was thrice named to the All-Ivy League First Team, the only Yale football athlete to be so honored. His school-record streak of 16 consecutive 100-yard rushing games was not broken until 2006. Jauron was awarded the Nils V. "Swede" Nelson Award for sportsmanship following his junior season and the Bulger Lowe Award, given to the best Division I-A/I-AA player in New England, after his senior season.
