Mike Shula (born June 3, 1965 in Baltimore, Maryland) is an American football quarterback coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars, an NFL team. Between 2003 and 2006, he was the head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide football program.

Mike Shula was born on June 3, 1965. He is the son of Don Shula, the NFL's all-time winningest coach. Shula attended high school at Christopher Columbus High School, in Miami, Florida, where he won all-state honors and led his team to the state championship game. He enrolled at the University of Alabama, where he started at quarterback for three seasons and graduated with a degree in labor relations in 1987.

Mike Shula's football career started with the Crimson Tide, where he was the starting quarterback from 1984–86. The team's record during these three seasons was 24–11–1, with wins in the Aloha Bowl and the Sun Bowl, plus key victories over USC, Ohio State and Notre Dame. Despite a lack of overwhelming athletic ability or a particularly strong arm, Shula was known for his gutsy performances in big games. He engineered last minute comebacks against Georgia and rivals Auburn, in the 1985 Iron Bowl. After graduating from Alabama, Shula was selected in the twelfth round, 313th overall pick, of the 1987 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but he saw little playing time in 1987, his only season in the NFL.
