Phil Albert is a former American football player and coach. He was the second head football coach at Towson University, serving from 1972 to 1991 and comping a record of a 117–91–3. Albert led the Tigers to the program's first conference championship in 1974 when they went 10–0 and won the Mason–Dixon Conference title.
Albert played college football at the University of Arizona. When he was named as the Tigers' coach at the age of 28, he was one of the youngest head football coaches in the nation, and Towson was starting just its fourth season of college football. Over the next 20 years, Albert directed the very young program to success at three different levels of NCAA competition. His teams advanced to the NCAA postseason four times.
Albert was named "Coach of the Year" five times. He coached 28 All-Americans and four National Football League (NFL) players, including Sean Landeta and Dave Meggett. In 1994, Phil was inducted into the Towson University Athletic Hall of Fame. From 1994 to 2001, he worked with the San Diego Chargers organization as the advanced game day scout.
