Michael John "Mike" Tomczak (born October 23, 1962 in Calumet City, Illinois) is a former American football player. Tomczak played quarterback for several NFL teams including the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Cleveland Browns, and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Tomczak played football at Thornton Fractional North High School in Calumet City where he was coached by his father Ron Tomczak. After earning Illinois High School Player of the Year honors, he won an athletic scholarship to The Ohio State University. While at OSU, he helped lead the Buckeyes to two Big Ten championship seasons. He graduated from OSU with a major in Communication.

Tomczak went undrafted out of college and signed as an original free agent with the Chicago Bears. He started no games his first year but did earn a Super Bowl ring, and saw playing time in Super Bowl XX on January 26, 1986, during the fourth quarter of the Bears' 46-10 win over the New England Patriots. He was a member of the "Shuffling Crew" in the Bears' video for The Super Bowl Shuffle, mimicking playing guitar.
