Joe Glenn (born March 7, 1949 in Lincoln, Nebraska) was the 30th head coach at the University of Wyoming since the school began playing football in 1893. Glenn took over Wyoming's football program in December 2002 after Wyoming fired the previous coach, Vic Koenning. He was fired on November 23, 2008 by UW Athletic Director Tom Burman after six seasons.
Joe Glenn served as backfield coach at his alma mater, the University of South Dakota, in 1974. He was also a backfield coach at Northern Arizona University in 1975.
Glenn's first head coaching job was at Doane College in Crete, Nebraska. There he was the youngest head college football coach at 27 years of age. While at Doane he compiled a 21-18-1 record over four seasons. After Doane, Glenn did his first stint at the University of Montana as a quarterbacks and wide receivers coach and offensive coordinator from 1980 to 1985. He was out of coaching in 1986. In 1987, he joined the staff at University of Northern Colorado (UNC) as quarterbacks and kicking coach. He was named head coach of UNC for the 1989 season.
