Tommy Bowden (born July 10, 1954 in Birmingham, Alabama) is an American football coach who most recently served as the head coach at Clemson University from 1999 until October 13, 2008. He is the son of Bobby Bowden, head coach at Florida State University, against whom he has coached in games nicknamed the "Bowden Bowl."

Bowden previously was the head coach at Tulane and Clemson University, and an assistant at the University of Alabama, Auburn University, Duke University, the University of Kentucky, East Carolina University and with his father at Florida State. His 1998 Tulane squad went 12–0 and achieved a top-10 final ranking in both polls.

Bowden was hired as Clemson's head coach before the 1999 season. Bowden's Clemson teams have been to a bowl game every year he has been coaching there, except in 2004, when a brawl with rival South Carolina resulting in both teams agreeing to voluntarily decline any invitation to a bowl game for that year. He resigned on October 13, 2008, after leading the team to a disappointing 3–3 record (1–2 ACC) at the midpoint of a season in which the Tigers were an almost unanimous preseason pick to win their first ACC title under Bowden and were ranked #9 in the preseason polls. Wide receivers and assistant head coach Dabo Swinney was named as interim head coach for the remainder of the season.
